Damaged Southwest jet towed from runway

Damaged Southwest jet at Sacramento International Airport towed from runway By The Associated Press

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) ' The Southwest Airlines flight that suffered two blown tires at Sacramento International Airport has been towed from the runway.

The Sacramento Bee reports (http://bit.ly/sr65fT) that all runways at the airport were again open on Wednesday morning, a day after the tires blew and forced one of the runways to close.

Sacramento County airport officials say crews have since conducted inspections of the runways, but have not found any debris that could have been responsible for the ruptures.



The Seattle-bound flight with 130 passengers on board was cancelled. The passengers were booked onto other flights.

Another Southwest flight was canceled on Wednesday as a precaution after striking a bird and returning to the runway. The plane suffered minor damage, and the passengers were rebooked onto other flights.
