SEATTLE – A Seattle-Tacoma International Airport spokeswoman says a cargo plane landing in snowy Seattle overshot its runway stopping point.
Spokeswoman Terri-Ann Betancourt says cargo planes typically carry a crew of two or three people. No injuries were reported in the incident Monday afternoon.
The spokeswoman says the China Airlines Boeing 747 arriving from New York overshot the runway's designated stopping point by about 100 feet but still stopped on concrete in the runway's safety area.
She says the plane was able to make its own way to the cargo area. The cause of the problem is under investigation.
She says the Seattle-Tacoma airport is otherwise operating normally.

SEATTLE (AP) — A Seattle-Tacoma International Airport spokeswoman says a cargo plane landing in snowy Seattle overshot its designated stopping point.
Spokeswoman Terri-Ann Betancourt says two or three people were aboard. No injuries were reported.
