PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - Authorities say there were no injuries when the wheel of a plane went off the runway pavement while taxing after it had landed at a New Hampshire airport.

Portsmouth International Airport officials say Allegiant Air Flight 672 with 145 passengers and four crew members landed normally around 6 p.m. Friday in the flight that originated in Orlando, Florida.

WMRU-TV reports that as the plane was taxiing to the gate the nose of the plan edged slightly off the runway pavement.

Airport Manager Paul Brean says passengers were in the plane for about an hour as crews worked to get the plane back on the runway. The airport provided passengers refreshments and pizza.

Brean says the runway is fine. The incident was likely caused by low visibility due to bad weather.
