Allegiant Air, McDonnell Douglas MD-83, N409NV: Incident occurred December 22, 2017 at Portsmouth International Airport at Pease (KPSM), Rockingham County, New Hampshire

PORTSMOUTH — A southbound departing flight was delayed for an hour Friday night after an arriving plane from Florida slid off the runway at the Portsmouth International Airport at Pease.

Allegiant Flight 672 from Orlando landed normally with 145 passengers and four crew aboard Friday just before 6 p.m., but the tip of the plane slid just over the pavement.

“As it was taxiing its nose just got caught up in some snow,” said Paul Brean, airport manager.

The plane was put back onto the runway with the help of an airport tractor, he said.

There were no injuries or damage to the plane.

The runway was fine and the cause of the incident was likely bad visibility due to the weather, officials said.

The airport provided delayed passengers with pizza and beverages.

The southbound flight took off just after 11 p.m. Friday.
