Plane skids off runway at Westchester County Airport

A private plane skidded off the runway at Westchester County Airport this morning.



Airport officials say a Gulfstream G-4 was coming in for a landing at 8:30 a.m. when, for unknown reasons, it veered four feet off runway 16 and ended up on the grass.



The pilot and co-pilot were the only ones on the plane. Officials say no one was hurt.



A heavy tow truck pulled the plane back to a hangar.



The runway was shut down for two hours causing dozens of flights to be delayed.



An investigation is underway as to what happened, but officials say fog most likely may have played a role in the landing.
