SEATTLE — A Seattle-Tacoma International Airport spokeswoman says a cargo jet landing this evening in snowy Seattle overshot its designated stopping point. Spokeswoman Terri-Ann Betancourt says two or three people were aboard and no injuries are reported.

She says the jet landed on concrete, just traveled farther than its normal stopping point. She says it’s been able to make its own way to the cargo area. The spokeswoman says it’s not clear what caused the plane to overshoot the mark.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer says the plane was a China Airlines Boeing 747-400 arriving from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City.
