WHEELING, Ill. - A small jet slid off a runway at Chicago Executive Airport during a snow storm Thursday in northwest suburban Wheeling.
A business jet with two people aboard went off the end of the runway about 11:20 p.m., according to a statement from the Federal Aviation Administration.
The plane was stopped by the runway’s "engineered material arresting system," which is a graded area designed to stop planes from overrunning the airfield.
The FAA didn’t provide the condition of the passengers. There were no injuries, according to media reports.
