DETROIT (WIVB) – Amid a winter storm warning – a Delta plane slides off the runway at Detroit Metro Airport.

The Detroit Free Press reporting that the flight, DL 724, departed from Buffalo at 10:05 a.m. and was scheduled for arrival at 11:27. Passengers exited the aircraft from its tail upon the rough landing. The plane slid off the runway and into the grass.

No injuries have been reported.

Heavy snow continued to pound the Detroit Metro area on Sunday — with much of Michigan’s southern Lower Peninsula, from Lake Michigan to Lake Huron, under a winter storm warning – the first significant storm of the season.

There are predictions of 7 to 10 inches of snow. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
