Plane Slides into End of Runway Arrestor System at Hollywood Burbank Airport

Southwest Airlines flight skids off runway in Burbank amid heavy rainfall

According to officials, the Southwest Flight 278 skidded off the runway in wet weather shortly after arriving at the Burbank Airport shortly after 9 a.m.

There are no reported injuries from the incident.

A Southwest Airlines Co. jet rolled off the end of a California runway as it landed in the rain, skidding to a stop on a crushable concrete surface created to hinder out-of-control aircraft. Firefighters were seen helping passengers off the plane and taking luggage out of the aircraft. Failure to abort the landing approach and an air-traffic controller's positioning of the plane for landing also contributed, the NTSB determined.

"We didn't realize what was going on, it was that fast", said a passenger, Gary Scott. "They go over these E-MAS beds and the landing gear slowly sinks into these blocks of crushable concrete", Yakel said.

Michelle Williams Announces Split From Chad Johnson, Releases ‘Fearless’ Single
The singer told PEOPLE that she broke up with Johnson just weeks after he asked for her hand in marriage in March. According to an Instagram post from Michelle Williams , her and her fiancee Chad Johnson have split up.

"It could have been a much grimmer circumstance", Carlson said. Dallas-based Southwest said everyone safely got off the plane by the stairs.

A unique safety system that has been installed at several Bay Area airports may have prevented a catastrophic crash of a Burbank-bound flight out of Oakland Thursday morning.

One of the airport's runways is closed but the airport is open, and all airlines are operational, according to the airport Twitter account.

Over one six-hour span, the area received 1.66 inches of rain.
