Weather forced a jet off a runway in Franklin County overnight. No one was hurt.

Officials with the Winchester Municipal Airport said the minor incident happened around 1 a.m. Thursday.

The Dassault Falcon 20 apparently came off the runway about 100 feet. Weather was said to be the cause.

Because the ground was soft, the plane got stuck.

There was no damage to the aircraft, nor was anyone hurt.

Airport officials said the jet was an older business plane that had been transformed into a cargo plane.
