One Blue Grass Airport flight was delayed and another was diverted Tuesday morning after a small private plane veered off a runway after landing, according to the airport.

The runway was closed for about an hour after the plane, a Rockwell International Sabreliner twin-engine, left the runway about 7 a.m. on Tuesday, airport spokeswoman Amy Caudill said. 

There were no injuries. 

Since the plane is privately owned, the airport was unable to give confirmed information about the cause of the incident or any damage to the aircraft, she said.

While the runway was closed, a Delta flight scheduled to leave Lexington was delayed about an hour and an Allegiant flight coming in from Punta Gorda, Fla., was diverted, Caudill said. The Allegiant flight was expected to land in Lexington soon after 9 a.m.

As of 9 a.m. Tuesday, the runway was back up and running, Caudill said.

The plane veered off Runway 4 while exiting Taxiway A7, Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said. 

The plane is registered as being owned by Stewart Aviation Services, LLC., which is based out of Birmingham, Ala., according to the Federal Aviation Administration aircraft database.

The Federal Aviation Administration will investigate the incident, Bergen said in an email Tuesday.

Some flights were off schedule at Lexington’s Blue Grass Airport this morning.

The runway at Blue Grass Airport was shut down for about an hour this morning because a private twin-engine plane had a rough landing. Airport spokesperson Tiffany Hart tells us the plane veered off the runway when it touched down just after 7:00 am.

The runway closure affected two flights, a Delta flight that was scheduled to leave Lexington was delayed for an hour and an Allegiant flight from Florida had to be diverted. The runway was reopened around 9:00 and Hart says the Allegiant flight has landed and things are running smoothly again.

No one was injured and the  Federal Aviation Administration will investigate. Early indications are that there was an issue with the plane’s nose gear.
