Airport blowout

Posted By on Fri, May 16, 2008 at 2:57 PM

Some tense moments today for passengers on a flight coming into Little Rock National Airport from Cleveland. A spokesperson for the airport confirms that around 2:15 p.m., a small Continental regional jet blew a tire on touchdown. T.J. Williams with the airport said the jet, an Embraer 145, was able to land safely and proceed to the gate as scheduled. Firetrucks and other emergency support vehicles were never called out.

“It was really a non-event for us,” Williams said.
