KANSAS CITY (WIBW)-- No flights have been affected out of Kansas City International airport after a plane veered off a runaway Wednesday morning.

Two maintenance workers were the only people on board and no injuries or damages were reported.

The Federal Aviation Administration will determine the reason for the mishap.
