Delta flight 1086 from Atlanta to LaGuardia Airport slid off the runway when landing Thursday morning, according to a Federal Aviation Administration official.
According to that official, the plane is a McDonnell Douglas MD-88. LaGuardia Airport was closed immediately after the incident occurred. The FAA said the airport is expected to reopen at 6:59 p.m. EST.
Port Authority spokesman Joe Pentangelo said the plane went off the runway at around 11:10 a.m.
