Plane slips off the runway at Craig Airport in Jacksonville

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department says a plane slid off a runway Wednesday afternoon while trying to land at Craig Airport.

JFRD said no injuries had been reported but they were on site to contain a fuel leak. There would have been three passengers on board.

Clayton Hammer, who pilots the Sky 4 helicopter, pointed out that rain had fallen in the area.

“You can see it behind us again, it’s cleared up a lot,” he said. “I’m sure heading in on a fast jet like theirs, jumping in and out of the clouds will always be a difficult, challenging flight scenario.”

The aircraft is registered from Sunrise, Florida. The flight plan shows it took off from Opa-locka in Miami-Dade County.

The National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating.
