A Southwest Airlines plane skid off a runaway at Orlando International Airport in Florida late Tuesday. The airliner was being pulled to a maintenance hangar when the incident occurred, according to Aviation Safety Network, an affiliate of nonprofit Flight Safety Foundation.
The nose gear of Boeing 737 failed, following which the aircraft became stationary, local reports said. No passengers were on board the plane and no injuries were reported.

Last month, another Southwest Airlines aircraft veered off the runway after making a landing at Richmond International Airport in Virginia. The plane was carrying five crew members and 131 passengers and no injuries were reported.
