Ryanair flight mishap closes Polish airport

Lodz airport in central Poland was closed today after a Ryanair plane with 170 passengers went off the runway while taxiing before takeoff.

A wheel on the Nottingham-bound Boeing 737 wheels got stuck in soft ground after leaving the tarmac while apparently trying to turn around at the end of the runway.

Officials closed the airport around noon while technicians prepared to pull the plane back on to the runway.

The passengers were bused 130km east to Warsaw for a flight to Nottingham.

Other Lodz flights were being diverted to Warsaw, and a bus service was to be provided.
