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

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

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.

After mice food delay, SpaceX set for space station resupply launch Wednesday
But this launch came with a little added drama: An unexpected splashdown by the returning rocket just offshore. The mission is SpaceX's 16th for NASA , as part of a long-term contract to ferry supplies to space.

"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.
