Logan Airport Plane Skids After Landing; No One Hurt

Federal aviation officials are looking into what caused a JetBlue plane to veer off a taxiway at Logan International Airport on Monday night.

Officials say JetBlue Flight 50 from Savannah, Ga., briefly skidded when it landed around 7:15 p.m. Monday.

"We were straight and all of a sudden we started fishtailing". "Once I realized we were going off the runway, I was like, 'uh-oh.' It was like you were going four-wheeling", passenger Terri Given told local ABC affiliate WCVB. Firefighters helped passengers off the plane, but no one was injured and the passengers were bused to the terminal. After ATC told the pilot an emergency crew would respond, the pilot said, "we just need a tow".

A suspicious package has been tracked outside the home of US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in California. Mnuchin was not in Los Angeles at the time of the incident, according to a law enforcement source.

"Coming down the runway and all of a sudden we started sliding and spinning and spinning and spinning". Passengers were jostled, but none were hurt. About three inches of snow had fallen at the airport earlier in the day, but the airport was open at the time of the incident.

Crews worked to clear the runways at Logan Airport Christmas Day during the peak of the snowstorm.

They also reduced the speed limit on the Massachusetts Turnpike to 40 miles per hour.
