Southwest AirlinesA Southwest Airlines aircraft made an emergency landing Tuesday evening at Bradley International Airport after experiencing a lightning strike, officials said today.
The plane landed safely, no one was injured, and there was no impact to airport operations, officials said.
Airport spokeswoman Alisa Sisic said the plane had been traveling from Manchester-Boston Regional Airport to Orlando International Airport when it had to divert course for an emergency landing at Bradley.
Southwest Airlines officials said this morning the aircraft is out of service for a maintenance review, and that the 135 customers and five crew members of Flight 2515 were accommodated on another aircraft to Orlando approximately four hours behind schedule.
Sisic also confirmed there was a fuel spill Tuesday afternoon at the airport’s Bombardier Service Center.
The spill was contained and cleaned up, and had no impact on airport operations, Sisic said.
