CASCADE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A plane carrying more than two dozen passengers slid off the taxiway at the Gerald R. Ford International Airport Thursday morning.
Airport officials said an American Eagle plane landed around 9:15 a.m. on a runway and then slid off a taxiway as it was heading to the gate to park.
There were 26 people on board including the crew, but no one was hurt.
The plane was towed to the gate around 11 a.m.
A cargo plane also slid off the taxiway at Ford Airport a few hours earlier.
Airport officials said the plane slid off the pavement into the grass while taxiing after landing around 6 a.m.
No one was hurt in the incident and no other flights were affected since the plane was not actually on the runway at the time the slide-off occurred, said Tara Hernandez, Ford Airport Marketing and Communications Manager.
The plane returned to the gate around 9:30 a.m.
