Corporate jet slides off runway in Eden Prairie


Investigators are trying to determine why a corporate jet on Monday morning skidded off the runway at Flying Cloud Airport in Eden Prairie.

The plane went through a fence, but there was no immediate explanation for what led to the incident, the Star Tribune reported.

Authorities said no one was injured, WCCO reported. Two pilots were on board, FOX 9 reported.

The incident happened before 9 a.m., KARE 11 reported. The plane was scheduled to land at Flying Cloud at 8:47 a.m. after departing Pittsburgh earlier Monday, KARE reported.

Metropolitan Airports Commission spokesperson Melissa Scovronski told KARE the front of the jet came to a rest on the shoulder of Flying Cloud Drive. News media images showed the plane just off the runway on a grassy slope.

The airport had nearly 100,000 takeoffs and landings in 2010, the most recent year for which data were available on the airport website.
