NEW CASTLE, Delaware — A New Castle County Airport official says a Frontier Airlines plane headed to Florida left the pavement and got stuck in the mud.
No injuries were reported after the plane got stuck Sunday night.
Airport spokesman Stephen Williams told the News Journal that Flight 1435 to Orlando, Florida, was cleared to head toward a runway, when the plane left the pavement. He says the nose gear and the right main gear become lodged in the soil.
According to Newsworks, a new plane was flown into the New Castle County airport Monday morning. All 105 passengers left for Orlando just at 12:10 p.m.
"The safety of our customers and crew is always our first priority and Frontier is cooperating with local and federal authorities in investigating what occurred," Frontier said in a statement.
Service members from the nearby Delaware Air National Guard were brought in on Monday to help pull the plane from the mud.
