Small business jet rolls partly off runway at Baltimore airport; no injuries reported

BALTIMORE – Aviation officials say a small business jet rolled partly off a runway at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.

Maryland Aviation Administration spokesman Jonathan Dean says no one was hurt in the incident Tuesday morning.

He says the Cessna Citation arrived shortly after 8 a.m. and was travelling from a runway to a taxiway when it apparently had a mechanical problem. Dean says the aircraft’s nose gear ended up on the grass at the edge of the runway.

He says the aircraft was towed from the grass.

Dean says commercial flight operations are not affected.
