Boeing 747 Cargo Jet Skids Off Runway At Canada's Halifax Airport

A Boeing 747 cargo jet went off the runway at the Halifax airport in eastern Canada early Wednesday morning, causing minor injuries to the four-member crew and forcing the temporary closure of the airfield.

The Sky Lease cargo plane overshot the runway just after 5:00 am as it made a scheduled landing on a flight from Chicago.

Images posted on social media showed the aircraft on its belly on the grass beyond the end of the runway, with a trail of debris behind it.

The crew members suffered minor injuries and were treated at a local hospital, the airport authority said in a statement.

The airport resumed operations three hours after the accident but dozens of flights were delayed or cancelled.
