CHEEKTOWAGA, NY - A 50-mile-per-hour gust of wind spun a Southwest Airlines passenger jet about 90 degrees while it was on a runway at Buffalo-Niagara International Airport around 1:30 on Friday, the Federal Aviation Administration has said.

The pilot radioed for emergency crews as a precaution but was able to taxi back to the gate without incident.

A total of 108 passengers and five crew members were on board Flight 2951 from Chicago when the wind gust caught the plane. The flight departed for Baltimore shortly after 3:30 P.M.
