A Southwest Airlines plane has skidded off the runway while landing at Eppley Airfield in Omaha, Nebraska, officials say. There were no immediate reports of injuries.
The incident happened just after 2 p.m. CT on Friday when the aircraft, a Boeing 737, was trying to land at the airport, where it was snowing and 20°F (-6.6°C).
Photos from the scene show that the aircraft exited near the end of the runway, but there was no evidence of major damage. No injuries have been reported.
Flight 1643 was flying from Las Vegas with 156 people on board, including 150 passengers and six crew members, according to Southwest Airlines.
“Airport fire crews are working with Southwest to deplane the passengers and take them to the terminal,” an airport spokesperson said on Twitter.
As a result of the incident, all flights have been suspended until further notice. “Please check with your individual airline for flight status,” the spokesperson said.
