UFA, Russia, Nov. 19 (UPI) -- A Boeing 737 slid off a runway after landing, got stuck in a huge snowdrift and forced a 10-hour shutdown at an airport in Ufa, Russia, authorities said.

No one was injured and the plane, carrying 90 passengers, did not have major damage, RIA Novosti reported.

The airport shutdown Sunday delayed about 15 flights, airport officials said.
