Transcript for Passenger: 'Panic on the Plane' After Aborted Takeoff
We want to turn to another plane incident in the U.S. A terrifying scare for passengers on a us airways flight. It happened in Philadelphia at the international airport. The plane lurching off the runway, the takeoff aborted and ABC's Ryan smith is here with all the latest. Good morning. Ryan. Reporter: Good morning. The plane was off the ground a little bit and nose went up and then down again and a passenger on 1702 and what happened next shocked everyone on board. Oh, my god. My plane. My plane just crashed. Turbulent takeoff. The plane is on fire. Reporter: Overnight us airways flight 1702 aborting takeoff at the last second and skidding off the runway after the plane's nose gear apparently collapsed. It's really tough to tell of the I see smoke down there. 1702 we'll dispatch emergency vehicles. Reporter: Smoke billowing from the left side. Frightened passengers exiting on emergency slides sprinting to get away. Some people seen on the wings even children hourrying to safety. There was no one in charge. Two passengers out of 149 received medical attention but the fear, the shock, still palpable hours later. I'm not going to Florida. Reporter: The FAA and ntsb are still investigating the departure debacle and passengers waited hours beforerd booing a new aircraft and landing safely in ft. Lauderdale early making a trip to the sunshine darker than expected. I think I'll take a train back home. It's still unclear what happened but the FAA saying the nose gear collapsed and the airline first tweeting that a tire blew. But a bumpy ride not soon forgotten by everyone on the plane.
