American Airlines flight goes off end of runway in Montreal

An American Airlines jet with 111 passengers on board ran off the runway at Montreal's Trudeau International Airport Tuesday evening, an airport official said.

There were no injuries and the plane was not seriously damaged, according to airport spokeswoman Anne Marcotte. All of the passengers were evacuated to an airport terminal.

Flight 802, a Boeing 737 that originated in Dallas, Texas, went off the end of the runway around 8 p.m.

The cause of the incident is not known, or whether rain was a factor, Marcotte said. The Canadian Transportation Safety Board will handle the investigation.

    Well thank goodness it was just off the runway & not off a cliff or a mountain! as far as the pilot goes, i think he did a pretty good job being under the influence and all. just like del now you know he is on too much medication!

    There are also so many video uploading sites, and these also provide facility for sharing their video clips, but I think YouTube is the finest.
