Private jet skids off runway at Salt Lake International
SALT LAKE CITY — A privately owned Lear jet aborted takeoff Tuesday and skidded off the runway at the Salt Lake City International Airport.
Just before 12:30 p.m., a Lear 55 with five passengers and two crew members was about to take off, when the pilot decided to abort at the last second, said airport spokeswoman Barbara Gann.
The plane skidded off the side of the runway, coming to a rest partially tilted with one wing touching the ground, she said.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Mike Fergus said there was a report that the "left main gear" or the wheel under the left wing collapsed.
Information such as who was on board and where the plane was going was not immediately available. Gann said there were no injuries.
None of the other flights taking off or arriving at the airport was affected by the incident.
