Johnson says pilots were able to land the plane safely, and all 50 passengers and three crew members were unhurt. Crews suspended operations at XNA for about 45 minutes to address the situation and tow the plane off the runway, but departures and arrivals have now resumed. XNA is now working to get the 50 Delta passengers onto other flights.
