PHOENIX -- A US Airways flight reportedly crashed Thursday at Philadelphia International Airport.

The crash was reported about 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

US Airways said Flight 1702 was departing Philadelphia for Fort Lauderdale, Fla. when a tire on the landing gear blew out.

No one was injured in the crash and all passengers were booked on later flights.

Photos on Twitter showed the craft lying on its nose in a grassy area next to the tarmac. One flier snapped a selfie with the plane in the background that quickly went viral.

The Federal Aviation Administration put a ground stop in place while people were evacuated.
