The accident left the Boeing 737-700 with its nose resting against the runway and forced the temporary closure of the airport.

Passengers on board the plane saw sparks flying as the nose scraped along the runway.

The aircraft, a Boeing 737-700, was last inspected July 18, 2013. The aircraft entered service in October 1999. Southwest is working with both the NTSB and Boeing in a preliminary investigation of this event.

Overnight, the aircraft was removed from the runway. Southwest has resumed full operations at LaGuardia.
