Cargo plane slides off runway at Boeing Field

Boeing Field's main runway was closed Thursday night after a cargo plane slid off the runway and into the grass.

A cargo plane slid off the runway and into the grass at Boeing Field at about 6:45 p.m. Thursday, King County spokeswoman Rochelle Ogershok said.

The pilot was the only person in the plane at the time and was uninjured.

The twin engine turbo prop plane apparently had a problem with its landing gear, Ogershok said. The county hasn't yet determined what caused the landing problem, but it may be weather-related; strong wind gusts were still blowing through the Puget Sound area Thursday evening.

Boeing Field's main runway was closed while crews moved the plane to a safe place, but its smaller runway remained open.
