All flights were grounded Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) on Thursday after a plane crashed on the runway. 

The US Airways flight briefly lifted off the ground before touching back down on the runway, spokesman Todd Lehmacher said.

“The Airbus A320 was taking off for Ft. Lauderdale and did get airborne, but the captain elected to abort the takeoff for reasons unknown at this time,” he said.

“The nose gear collapsed when the aircraft returned to the ground.”

The plane then skidded across the runway. 

The plane was evacuated after it stopped. 

Photos show the plane nose down off the runway. Passenger Dennis Fee, who shared the above photo from the scene, said via Facebook that everyone is okay.

No injuries have been reported, a spokesperson confirmed with CBS.

The ground stop was lifted after about an hour.
