Fort Collins, Colo. (AP) - Allegiant Air says the nose gear of one of its planes ran off a taxi-way at the Fort Collins-Loveland Municipal Airport, but none of the 145 passengers and crew was injured.

Allegiant Spokeswoman Tyri Squyres says the MD-83 landed safely on a flight from Las Vegas on Friday and was taxiing to the terminal when it became stuck at about 10:30 a.m.

Airport Manager David Gordon says the passengers and crew were taken by bus to the terminal.

Squyres says the airline is working to find a replacement plane for a return flight to Las Vegas. There was no immediate word on damage to the MD-83.
