Plane slides off runway at Columbia Regional Airport

A 5:30 p.m. flight to Chicago from the Columbia Regional Airport was cancelled Saturday evening after the plane slid off the runway and got stuck in the mud.

The Columbia Fire Department and and the Southern Boone County Fire Protection District responded to the scene.

Passengers said they waited on the airplane for an hour before fire crews helped them get out of the plane and drove them back to the terminal.

Crews told ABC 17 News no one was injured.

Passengers said they were told they could fly out of the airport on the next scheduled flight.

But some passengers told ABC 17 News they didn’t want to fly out of the Columbia airport after what happened, so they re-booked their flights out of the St. Louis airport for tomorrow morning.
