I spoke to Alex. He's fine," agent Scott Boras said.

None of the seven people aboard were injured, federal officials said.
The Gulfstream G-II carried five passengers and two crew members, the National Transportation Safety Board said in a statement from Washington, D.C.
The twin-engine jet was stopped by an Engineered Materials Arresting System, pavement injected with air bubbles designed to collapse under the weight of an aircraft as large as a Boeing 737 jet traveling as fast as 50 knots, airport spokesman Victor Gill said.
"It came to a pretty quick stop," Gill said.
Damage to the aircraft was minor, the board said.
An NTSB official was sent to investigate the 11:35 a.m. incident. The board planned to retrieve the cockpit voice recorder, gather radar data and evaluate how well the arresting system worked.
The aircraft, registered to a Wilmington, Del., corporation, approached from the west and landed on one of the airport's two runways. The runway was closed and reopened at 3:30 p.m. after the plane was moved, Gill said. Bob Hope Airport, in the San Fernando Valley north of downtown Los Angeles, is used by seven airlines and private aircraft.

If I was a Yankee I would be avoiding airplanes as much as I could right now.

The Yankees are jinxed: they should have never let Farnsworth on the team.

Yes, he does, and it is a fantastic airport. Way better than LAX. Unfortunately, no non-stop flights from there to Chicago, though. :whiner:
