Plane skids into snow bank in Albany

ALBANY -- A plane skidded into a snow bank at an upstate New York airport and became stuck, temporarily stranding passengers.

A spokesman for the Albany County Airport Authority says there were no injuries.

GoJet Airlines flight 3645 was leaving the gate in Albany en route to Chicago on Saturday when it slid off a paved roadway. It had been snowing lightly all day.

The flight was operating as a United Express flight.

The 66 passengers and four crew members were sent back to the airport by bus.

Airport authority spokesman Doug Myers says the accident didn't cause any other airport delays.

A GoJet spokesman says the aircraft will remain in Albany and undergo a full inspection by maintenance crews.
