American Airlines plane runs off runway at DFW Airport

Federal investigators are trying to figure out why an American Airlines passenger jet ran off the end of a runway at DFW Airport over the weekend.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the Boeing plane had a braking issue.

The flight was arriving from Reagan International Airport in Washington D.C. Saturday night and had just landed in Dallas.

The plane ended up in a safety area beyond the end of the runway.

American Airlines said it is cooperating with the FAA’s investigation.
