There were no injuries reported after a private plane slid off the runway at Easterwood Airport Friday afternoon.

College Station firefighters responded to an aircraft emergency at the airport.

Upon landing one of the main wheels of a two-engine private jet buckled causing the jet to slide. Due to the softened ground, it took a few hours to extract the plane and realign the wheel.

There were 3 people on the plane, but none of them are seriously hurt.

Just before 7 p.m. Friday, airport director Joshua Abramson said the aircraft was cleared and the runway and airport were in full operation.
