BOCA RATON, Floeida — The Boca Raton airport reopens after a multi-engine plane skids off the runway into a nearby fence Tuesday morning.

The pilot was attempting to land when the 1958 Aero Commander 500 fixed wing multi-engine aircraft skidded off the runway, according Boca Raton Airport Authority Executive Director Clara Bennett.
He was the only person on board and he was not hurt.
“Because it’s a single runway airport if there’s any incident on the runway, the runway is immediately closed which means no arrivals or takeoffs except for helicopters because they are not using the runway,” Bennett said.
She believes the brakes may have malfunctioned, but this cannot be confirmed until the Federal Aviation Administration completes its investigation.
