Aircraft goes off runway at Blue Grass Airport

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Officials at Blue Grass Airport had to close a runway after a private plane veered off the runway.

The incident happened on the main runway on Tuesday morning. A spokesperson says they closed the runway for about an hour.

The plane apparently had a nose gear issue.

There are no reports of injuries.

The airport did have to delay one flight; they diverted another. The diverted flight, an Allegiant airlines plane that took off from Punta Gorda, had to land at Tri Cities Airport in Tennessee. It’s now scheduled to arrive in Lexington at 10:40 am, according to the airport.

Officials have since reopened the runway.
