Passengers on US Airways Flight 1702 were evacuated Thursday when their plane crash-landed shortly after takeoff from Philadelphia Airport.
"All customers and crew have safely evacuated," US Airways rep Todd Lehmacher said in a statement. "Emergency crews are on scene. Passengers are in the process of being transported to the terminal."
Philadelphia Airport grounded all planes "until further notice."
