An American Eagle airliner carrying 59 passengers ran off a taxiway at Little Rock National Airport and became mired in mud, but no one was injured, airport officials said.
The Bombardier CRJ-700 was preparing to leave for Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport on Wednesday night when it slid off the pavement, said Andrea Huguely, an airline spokeswoman. Heavy rain was partly to blame, she said.
Passengers were put on another flight, and the plane that got stuck was towed to a hangar.
"Our maintenance folks evaluated the aircraft and it's due to go back into service later today," Huguely said.
American Eagle is owned by AMR Corp. of Fort Worth, Texas.
