A Delta Airlines plane has slid off a runway in Georgia


A Delta Airlines jet has slid off the end of the runway at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in the US state of Georgia.

The plane was testing its brakes by accelerating on the runway and then attempting to stop.

However, the brakes failed and the plane ended up tilted at an angle at the end of the airfield.

There were no passengers on board at the time and there are no reports of any injuries to the crew, as the BBC's Jane Hill explains.
