Plane stuck in snow for 2 hours at Pittsburgh International Airport

Passengers flying an American Airlines flight into Pittsburgh Wednesday night had to remain on board for about two hours more than they expected when the plane ran over a snow patch and got stuck.

JoAnn Jenny, a spokeswoman for Pittsburgh International Airport, said the plane landed safely between 8 and 9 p.m. and was on a ramp taxiing to the gate when it ran over a snow patch and some snow got stuck in a gear, stranding the plane on the ramp.

Ms. Jenny said airport workers tried for nearly two hours to tow the plane to the gate and then decided to bring a bus to transport people from the plane to the terminal.

No one was injured.
