Pinnacle Airlines Canadair CRJ-200, Delta Airlines, N8938A: Runway excursion at Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport (KCLE), Ohio

CLEVELAND - It was a scare for some holiday travelers Friday night at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.  Airport spokesman Todd Payne says around 9:45 p.m. Friday, a Delta jet on its way to Cleveland from JFK Airport in New York City landed and taxied off the runway a few feet onto the grass.

Airport Commissioner Fred Szabo says the plane got stuck and had to be towed out.   Payne says the incident was weather-related and that it's not unusual for this to happen sometimes during the winter months.   No one on the 50 seat jet was injured. There was no damage. The airport was back to normal within the hour.
