A Delta MD-80 from Atlanta ran off the end of the runway at
Pensacola Friday night. The flight carried 140 passengers and five
crew members. The aircraft's landing gear sank in the soft dirt at

was no indication of damage. Still, they admit, getting the
aircraft out of the dirt without causing structural damage to the
MD-80 is, as the Brits say, a "real poser."

the dirt and back onto the runway, officials shut down the airport.
Runway 17/35 is the only IFR approach available at the field.
