American Airlines Plane Skids Off Runway During Landing, Sending Its Nose Into Dirt At Boise Airport



The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating after an American Airlines flight from Texas skidded off the runway during its landing in Boise, Idaho, Monday night.
A photo shared by Twitter user @Pilot1Jim shows the plane in the dirt off the runway at Boise Air Terminal/Gowen Field early Tuesday. Workers can be seen standing nearby.
American Airlines Flight 2990 departed Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and touched down normally in Boise at around 10 p.m. Monday. According to the airline, the Boeing 737s front wheel hit the gravel surface next to the pavement while taxiing toward the terminal, sending the plane off the taxiway.
The plane could not proceed to the terminal, so passengers disembarked via air stairs and were bussed to the terminal, the airline said.
The daily flight was scheduled to resume on Tuesday, but the plane involved in Mondays incident remains out of service pending inspection.
