Small Plane Rolls Off Runway at Albany Airport, Pilot Unhurt

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -

Albany International Airport has reopened after being closed briefly when a small plane rolled off a runway on landing.

Airport authorities say the single-engine aircraft inbound from Indianapolis veered off the runway just before 2 p.m. Tuesday. They say the pilot, who was alone onboard, believes a wheel brake locked and caused the plane to turn onto grass lining the runway.

The airport was shut down for a short time as emergency crews were sent to check the plane and pilot.

The pilot wasn’t hurt and was able to taxi to a hangar.
