Snow Makes For Difficult Christmas Day Travel; Logan Runways Temporarily Closed

Officials say JetBlue Flight 50 from Savannah, Georgia, briefly skidded when it landed around 7:15 p.m. Monday.

Chisholm added the accident was not the fault of the pilot. Firefighters rushed to the scene of the incident to safely guide the passengers off the plane. Passengers on board applauded the pilot when the plane came to a halt. "Pilot did a fantastic job". "We just need a tow".

"You could tell when we hit ice because we felt the plane spinning around like it was making a sharp turn", Corbett says. They were taken back to the terminal in an airport bus.

Earlier on Monday, Logan Airport shut down its runways and grounded its flights due to heavy snow, which brought about poor visibility. But the runways were later cleared for operations to continue as normal.

Shortly after 11:30 a.m., crews at Logan were able to dig out and things were able to get moving again.

Across the Boston area, the snow had caused disruption, with thousands of people left without power for a period on Christmas Day, according to the Boston Globe.

They also reduced the speed limit on the Massachusetts Turnpike to 40 miles per hour.
