We had a plane scare too...

FROM THE AVIATION HERALD: Incident: VLM F50 (like the one above) at Isle of Man on Jan 15th 2009, veered off runway
A VLM Fokker 50, registration OO-VLF performing flight VG-662 from London City,EN to Isle of Man (UK) with 20 passengers and 4 crew, was landing at Isle of Man's Ronaldsway Airport in high winds, when a gust caught the airplane and caused it to veer off the runway. The airplane came to a stop with the left main and nose gear on soft ground. No injuries occured, the airplane suffered no damage. Passengers disembarked normally onto the runway.

The airport's runway had to be closed until the airplane could be towed off the runway.
