A Boeing 737 slid off the runway into the St. Johns River on Friday
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - No one was seriously hurt Friday night when a jet carrying 143 people slid off the runway at Naval Air Station Jacksonville and into the St. Johns River, authorities said. It’s unclear what caused the plane to skid off the runway, although severe weather was rolling through the area at the time.
News4Jax aviation analyst Ed Booth said the NTSB is going to primarily be concerned with the data recording devices, the black boxes. “I suspect by the end of Saturday it will be pulled back onto the overrun area from there,” he said. But Booth said it will likely be two years before a final determination into the cause will be made.
