ATLANTA -- Authorities say a jet sustained significant damage when it rolled of a taxiway at the world's busiest airport in Atlanta.
Delta Air Lines spokesman Eric Torbenson tells The Associated Press that mechanics were testing the engines of the Boeing 737 when they experienced a problem with the braking system around 5 a.m. today.
Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said there were no passengers aboard the aircraft, and no injuries were reported.
Bergen said the jet rolled off the taxiway on the east side of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. She wasn't aware of any impact on airport operations as of 6 a.m.
