Two pilots and one passenger walked away without injury on Wednesday morning after a HondaJet HA-420 overshot a runway at Pittsburgh-Allegheny County Airport (AGC).

Local media reported snowy conditions around the time of the excursion; however, it’s not clear if weather played a role in the incident.  The aircraft is listed in the FAA aircraft registry as being under fractional ownership, with Greensboro, N.C.-based operator Jet It listed as the principal owner, along with nine other LLCs and corporations.

Jet It manages a fleet of Honda Jet HA-420s and Gulfstream G150s, according to its website.

The flight landed around 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, according to data on FlightAware, a little over an hour after departing from Teterboro Airport (TEB) in New Jersey. Information posted to the Aviation Safety Network website indicates that this happened on runway 28, with the jet coming to a halt in a downward slope. Local news video showed crews working to retrieve the plane.

A third-party spokesperson told that Jet It is working with authorities and Honda Aircraft Company to determine what happened.
