RICHMOND, Va. Dec 23, 2004 — An American Airlines plane preparing for takeoff went off the runway and became stuck in mud Thursday at Richmond International Airport, shutting the two main runways and delaying nearly all incoming flights, an airport spokesman said.
American Airlines flight 1239, bound for Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, was mired at the grassy juncture of the two main runways around 8:20 a.m., airport spokesman Troy Bell said. The runways handle 98 percent of all air traffic, he said. A third runway used for regional jets was still operational.
None of the 129 passengers or five crew members on the MD
-80 was injured, Bell said. Passengers were being evacuated and Bell said he expected it to take a couple of hours before the plane could be freed from the mud.
It appears the pilot "underestimated his turning radius" and drove off the runway, Bell said. He said weather was not a factor.
