An Air Canada Jazz Express commuter plane from Calgary appeared to hit an icy patch while landing in Saskatoon this evening and ended up stuck in heavy snow, according to a passenger on the flight. There were no apparent injuries. 

The incident happened around 5:30 p.m. CST Thursday at Saskatoon's Diefenbaker International Airport.

Dominique Delisle was on the plane, a Jazz flight with about 70 passengers. Delisle said people waited on the plane for about 30 minutes for a bus to take them from the runway area to the airport.

No other details were immediately available from airport officials or the airline.

A CBC reporter at the airport said a number of flights scheduled to depart Saskatoon Thursday evening were delayed.
