US Airways flight crashes at Philadelphia airport

PHOENIX — A US Airways flight reportedly crashed Thursday at Philadelphia International Airport.

The crash was reported about 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

US Airways said Flight 1702 was departing Philadelphia for Fort Lauderdale, Fla. when a tire on the landing gear blew out.

No one was injured in the crash and all passengers were booked on later flights.
