CHICAGO (AP) — Snowy conditions at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport have led to a small jet sliding off a runway and a commercial jet sliding on a taxiway.
A Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman says an Embraer Phenom E55P flown by private operator NetJets slid off a runway around noon Tuesday. A Chicago Aviation Department spokeswoman says the plane originally was headed to Executive Airport in Wheeling but landed at O'Hare.
No injuries were reported. The Embraer Phenom carries up to nine occupants.
The FAA spokeswoman says a short time later, a McDonnell Douglas MD-83 operated by American Airlines requested to be towed to the terminal after sliding on a taxiway.
The city Aviation Department says more than 375 flights have been canceled at O'Hare because of snow and freezing rain.
