Nose gear problem grounds flight at Blue Grass Airport

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Frightening moments for passengers trying to leave Lexington's Blue Grass Airport Friday on an Allegiant Airlines flight.

An airline spokesperson tell us the plane had a problem with the nose gear while taxiing to the runway and came to a sudden halt.

Pilots left the plane where it stopped and had the passengers taken off and returned to the terminal.

The flight will now leave Lexington on Saturday.

Passengers have been offered a seat on the new flight or they can cancel for a full refund.

If they traveled more than 50 miles to the airport, the airline will put them up in a hotel for the night.
