An American Airlines jet went past the end of a snowy runway while landing at Wyoming’s Jackson Hole Airport on Wednesday, but no one was injured and the plane was not damaged.
An American Airlines Boeing 757 jetliner from Chicago O’Hare International Airport ran off the runway about 1:00 p.m. Wednesday at Jackson Hole Airport in Jackson, Wyo., after it landed there, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.
No injuries were reported. American Flight No. 2253 departed from O’Hare at 9:53 a.m. carrying 175 passengers and six crew members onboard and apparently slid into deep snow after landing on-time at 11:41 a.m. MST.
Passengers exited the aircraft via air stairs and were taken by bus to the Jackson Hole Airport terminal.
The Jackson Hole airport has difficult weather at times. The higher altitude of the airport is also associated with higher air speeds.Weather Data for Wednesday, December 29th, 2010
