Plane stuck in snow on tarmac at Pitt International causes delay

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Officials say a flight that landed safely in Pittsburgh during Wednesday night’s storm got stuck in snow for about two hours on the tarmac.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the American Airlines flight arrived between 8 and 9 p.m., but then ran over a snow patch and got stuck.

Airport spokeswoman JoAnn Jenny says workers tried for nearly two hours to tow the plane to the gate before deciding to bus passengers to the terminal.

No injuries are being reported.
