HEBRON, Ky. (AP) -- The FAA says a Cincinnati-bound passenger plane that was trying to land had to pull up suddenly from the runway because another plane hadn't cleared the landing strip. The plane landed safely on a second attempt.
FAA spokeswoman Holly Baker said there was no safety risk to passengers Saturday.
Patrick Steitz says he was a passenger on the Pinnacle Airlines flight from St. Louis. He says the plane was within about 10 feet of the runway at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport when the engines roared and the plane turned back up.
He says passengers realized what was happening and were relieved the plane didn't try to land. Steitz says the pilot later told them over a loudspeaker what happened.
The Laurel, Md., resident says the pilots handled the situation well.
