Plane slides off taxiway at Boston Airport

A spokesperson for Jet Blue put out a statement on Twitter which read ‘JetBlue flight 50 from Savannah to Boston went off a taxiway shortly after landing at approximately 7:15pm. Firefighters are seen above boarding the aircraft after it skidded off

The pilot of the aircraft reportedly told air traffic controllers the spin was due to ice on the runway. "Everybody was applauding him at the end", he said. "We just skidded on the ice".

Investigators blame the wintry weather in Boston for that plan skidding into the grass. "They said the wind coming in was really bad, then he landed, he thought he was OK, and hit some ice". Taxiways are the "roads" that planes use to roll to and from runways. Passengers were jostled, but none were hurt.

A video shared on Instagram showed passengers being transported from the plane by bus, emergency services at the scene and the static aircraft after it had spun out of control. As much as three inches of snow had fallen previously in the day, and Logan International was temporarily closed that morning. Crews worked to clear the runway of snow and many flights were delayed.

Shortly after 11:30 a.m., crews at Logan were able to dig out and things were able to get moving again. Massachusetts Department of Transportation said it had almost 2,000 crews out plowing snow.
