Passengers were evacuated from the plane and taken to the terminal by bus.

A total of 59 passengers and 4 crew members were on board the aircraft. Flight 1284, operated by a Dash 8 aircraft, had taken off from Dundee in Scotland and made a stop in Edinburgh before flying on to the Dutch capital of Amsterdam.

There was also no immediate word on the cause of Thursday's incident, which happened as a major storm battered the Netherlands and other parts of Europe. The severe weather had already caused flight delays and cancellations.

Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is located in Haarlemmermeer, just southwest of Amsterdam, and is one of the busiest airports in Europe in terms of passengers.
