SCOTTSDALE, AZ - Scottsdale Airport is currently closed after a twin-engine plane veered off the runway Wednesday evening.
Sarah Ferrara, spokesperson for the airport, said the plane left the runway and went about 30 feet into some rocks.
One person was aboard the plane and "appears to be fine," she said in an email to ABC15. The airport's runway was not damaged, she said.
Crews were working to remove the aircraft so the airport could reopen.
Air15 video showed the plane just off the runway with emergency crews nearby.
The airport is located near Scottsdale Road and Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd.
