Pence says hacking evidence points to Russia

It was likely a combination of technological innovation and government regulation that prevented the chartered Boeing 737-700 carrying Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence and his entourage from a potentially serious disaster at New York's LaGuardia Airport on Thursday night.

The landings have become a source of jokes, with one reporter commenting a few weeks ago that a "Pence plane veers off the runway" had already been pre-written.

The National Transportation Safety Board said Thursday night it would investigate the incident.

"So thankful everyone on our plane is safe", the IN governor said on Twitter after the incident.

Including Pence's plane, EMAS has safely stopped overrunning aircraft 11 times, according to the FAA. "Grateful for our first responders & the concern and prayers of so many. They were virtually on the scene before the plane stopped rolling and grateful to the pilots and everyone involved and we are back on the campaign trail today".

Live television footage showed Pence standing in the rain near the plane among emergency vehicles, talking to police and other officials.

Witness accounts also claim the plane was covered in mud as it had skidded through the grass and came to rest on a perimeter fence at LaGuardia Airport.

Pence spokesman Marc Lotter said Pence spoke with Trump shortly after the landing.

A spokesperson for the Trump campaign said the GOP presidential nominee had contacted Pence and was "very glad everyone onboard the plane is safe".

The takeoff from Iowa was delayed for about two hours because of bad weather in NY.

Pence canceled a scheduled fundraising event at Trump Tower in Manhattan following the accident.

The flight arrived in NY from Fort Dodge, Iowa, where Pence made a campaign stop.

EMAS is made up of massive blocks of material created to collapse as the wheels of an airplane roll over it, sinking the plane into the runway and bringing it to a safe and gradual stop.

"Our son is a Marine Corps aviator, and he says every landing you walk away from is a successful landing", Pence said.
