Plane Slides Off the Runway at New York’s LaGuardia Airport

No one appears to be seriously injured

A Delta airplane carrying 127 passengers skidded off the runway and crashed into a fence at LaGuardia airport in New York City while landing in snowy conditions on Thursday. Twenty-four people suffered minor injuries, and three were transported to local hospital, officials said.

More than a dozen firefighters arrived to the scene to help passengers off the plane that flew in from Atlanta. A small fuel spill occurred but was said to be under control. The Federal Aviation Administration said the airport had been closed and was not expected to reopen until 6:59 p.m. E.T.

A TIME reporter on the scene observed at least one passenger on a stretcher in Terminal D and what appeared to be multiple emergency vehicles on the runway. All passengers were moved to the Delta Sky Club.

One passenger told the reporter that it “looked like we were going into the water.”

More than 4,000 flights have been cancelled within, into or our of the U.S., according to FlightAware.

Eyewitnesses and others reacted to the incident on social media:

Thank God! No one hurt 🙏 we could of ended up in the water! #survive #thankgod #ice #safelanding

New York Giants player Larry Donnell was apparently on the flight and posted a video on Instagram:

See Exclusive Sketches of the Mockingjay Battle Outfit

A peek inside Cinna's sketchbook on the eve of the film's DVD release

Revolutions often come with a uniform, from the pantalons of the French sans-culottes to Che Guevara’s military fatigues. So when Katniss Everdeen joins the uprising in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1, she has to dress the part.

Mockingjay is already on digital HD and comes out on DVD/Blu-ray on Friday, and to mark the occasion, the movie’s costume directors have shared their drawings of Katniss’s battle outfit (six of which are being released here for the first time). Design team Kurt and Bart say they took inspiration from the armor collection at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as historical depictions of Joan of Arc. The result is this sketchbook, depicted in the film as belonging to Katniss’s stylist, Cinna.

The designers say creating the outfit through that character’s eyes was a helpful approach to the process. “He knew [Katniss] was to become not only an actual on-the-ground leader of a rebellion,” says Kurt, “but also the symbol of the revolution. Symbol and soldier was our mantra.”

  • Lionsgate

    Kurt: In this drawing you can see one of the earlier versions of the shoulder armor which was a bit more stylized. The asymmetrical breast plate was informed by the gear worn in the Japanese martial art of archery Kyudo. We gave all of these hard armored parts a very subtle sheen of iridescent blue back which referenced the Mockingjay bird. The jacket itself was built almost like a corset with a woven maze of nylon webbing at the waist that when zipped gave Jen an even smaller waist.

  • Lionsgate

    Bart: The costume was built to be modular and at its base was a set of tactical combat fatigues featuring a jacket and pants. We designed this fatigue for maximum functionality. This sketch shows that base fatigues that are similar to the lean silhouette of the rest of our D13 soldiers in the film, but there are very considered design details specific to Katniss and her weapon of choice the bow and arrow.

  • Lionsgate

    Kurt: This drawing shows several studies of what would become her three finger shooting glove that was attached at the wrist and featured ballistic materials also found in the protective gear in the costume.

  • Lionsgate

    Bart: This drawing shows the way we shaped the wings to be close to the body which was nice because from the front you could just see the beginnings of that arc and how that pulled to the back. We had to also arrange the style lines of the feathers so that the sculpture didn’t get in the way of the quiver which had to occupy the same space. The quiver was ingeniously rigged to a channel that slid into a mount at the center of the back plate, thus making a shoulder strap obsolete. This page also shows how Cinna might paste together images that inform his process, images of the Mockingjay, an actual feather and strips of fabrics. Our Production Designer Phil Messina did a beautiful job making this into a really beautiful art prop for the film.

  • Lionsgate

    Kurt: Creating the wings we looked at and drew so many different kinds of feathers. We settled on a sculptural stylized version and this sketch shows a study in variations on the amount of beveling and possible finishes. There is a knifelike quality to the final feathers designed to catch the light in a very beautiful way without feel in too menacing.

  • Lionsgate

    Bart: This is another quick sketch page working out the silhouette as well as how an artist like Cinna would use his sketchbook almost like a mood board, utilizing bits and pieces of different inspirations.

  • Lionsgate

    Bart: This is the fashion version of the Mockingjay. I swear that I have shortened the legs three times on this drawing and I know they are still ridiculous.

  • Lionsgate

    Kurt: This drawing features the revamp of the Mockingjay pin in a black powder coat to match the armor. Our fantastic prop designer Drew Petrotta came up with the black design which really was the final piece of the puzzle.

Get Ready for Community Season 6 in Yahoo’s New Trailer

Not all of the gang is back for the web reboot

Greendale is missing a few old faces in the new trailer for Community (like Yvette Nicole Brown’s Shirley and Donald Glover’s Troy), but Yahoo wants fans to know they should expect more of the material they already love in the reboot of the former NBC comedy.

The new preview for season six, which parodies the pace and drama of action trailers, doesn’t try to fool viewers into thinking everything will be the same. “You wanted to save Greendale,” a narrator says early on, “but you didn’t want it to change.” Moments later, a white woman called “new Shirley” (Paget Brewster as Frankie Dart) makes her entrance. Clearly concessions have been made, but it seems Yahoo has found a clever way to address the shift.

The reboot marks Yahoo’s biggest move into original programming so far, but unlike its streaming competitor Netflix, Community season six will roll out one week at a time like network television. That means bingeing won’t be an option when the show returns on March 17.

Here’s Your First Look at Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Edward Snowden

The actor shared a photo of himself as Snowden in basic training

If you’re looking for Oscar bait, taking a starring role in a biopic is usually a safe bet — even if the subject is one of the most controversial men alive. Joseph Gordon-Levitt likely had this in mind when he signed on for Snowden, directed by Oliver Stone and slated for a December release. The Inception actor released the first photograph of himself in costume on Facebook Tuesday, and if appearances are everything, it looks like the casting director made the right choice.

In his post, Gordon-Levitt said he was surprised when he learned Edward Snowden had enlisted in the army in 2004, but was discharged after breaking both legs in basic training. “After that,” the actor wrote, “he was still determined to serve his country (love him or hate him, you gotta admit the guy’s strong-willed) and so he ended up getting a job at the CIA, which is where his career in Intelligence began.”

The real-life Snowden’s lawyer announced Tuesday that the former NSA contractor is considering a return to the U.S. if he’s guaranteed a fair trial. But JGL is busy in the fictional Snowden’s early days, writing, “I’m just honored and excited to be doing a soldier sequence with Oliver. I keep saying to myself: “f-, this guy directed Platoon!”

Listen to Haim and M83’s New Song for the Insurgent Soundtrack

"Holes in the Sky" sets the moody, epic tone for the second movie in the Divergent series

Divergent fans can get excited for the second movie in the series with the release of “Holes in the Sky,” the first song from the Insurgent soundtrack.

The collaboration between French electronic band M83 (who performed “I Need You” on the first movie’s soundtrack) and indie rock sister act Haim is a pretty conventional take on the dystopian soundtrack genre, heavy on strings and smooth harmonies. Still, it’s nice to see both groups getting even more mainstream exposure — especially if it sends new fans to worthier examples of their work.

Insurgent, starring Shailene Woodley and her The Fault in Our Stars co-star Ansel Elgort, hits theaters March 20.

Man Who Butt-Dialed 911 Gets Jailed for Drug Talk

What started as a mistake ended in an arrest

A Pennsylvania man accidentally landed himself and his friends in hot water with law enforcement when he butt-dialed 911.

A 911 switchboard operator was prepared to hang up, as he is trained to do, after a butt-dial came in late last year, but paused when he heard the caller talking with another man about selling stolen electronic devices for cocaine, the York Dispatch reports. The dispatcher, Troy Snyder, stayed on the call for 20 minutes, eventually sending the police to the caller’s location. He ascertained the address when someone in the hotel room used another phone to call a drug dealer with their location so he could come meet them.

When the police arrived, they discovered a computer tablet and some syringes, but all three men denied ownership. One of the men lied about his name; he was the only one to be charged, for false identification. That man, Edward Lee Luttrell, pleaded guilty on Wednesday and was sentenced to 15-30 days in jail. He told the judge he was “happy” with that decision.

New York Man to Celebrate 108th Birthday With Wife, 104, After 82 Years of Marriage

Duranord Veillard still does 5 to 7 push-ups a day

A Spring Valley, N.Y. man celebrates his 108th birthday on Saturday with his wife of 82 years. And on her birthday in May, she’ll turn 105.

Duranord and Jeanne Veillard were married in Haiti in 1932 and moved to the U.S. in the late ’60s. The couple raised five children and live at home with a daughter. They are grandparents to 12 and great-grandparents to 14.

USA Today reports that the birthday boy starts each day with oatmeal, fruit and a cup of tea, and ends it with fish and vegetables. He is apparently still able to do five to seven push-ups daily.

Watch Jon Stewart Face Off With a WWE Wrestler on The Daily Show

This does not seem like a very fair match-up

Jon Stewart and Seth Rollins have been mock-feuding ever since the WWE star boasted that he could replace the Daily Show host—and do a better job. On Thursday’s broadcast, Rollins interrupted Stewart’s moment of zen to challenge the comedian to a fight.

The wrestler showed up on the set and threatened Stewart: “I hope, my friend, that you are prepared for a world of hurt.”

Stewart wasn’t quite up for a duel in the moment, so Rollins challenged him to come to Monday Night Raw at Newark’s Prudential Center in a few days.

We just hope Rollins goes easy on the little guy—even his neck looks scary.

See the First Photo of Eddie Redmayne as a Transgender Painter in The Danish Girl

The new Oscar winner plays early 20th-century artist Lili Elbe

Fresh off his Best Actor win at the Oscars, Eddie Redmayne is back in the spotlight with the release of the first photo from his role in The Danish Girl.

Redmayne plays Lili Elbe, an early 20th-century Danish artist who was born as a man named Einar Wegener and received one of the earliest sex-change operations. The film is based on the David Ebershoff novel of the same name and is directed by Tom Hooper (The King’s Speech).

Redmayne has addressed criticism that the role was not being played by an actual transgender woman, saying in an interview with The Telegraph earlier this year, “There is an incredibly valid discussion for why a trans actress isn’t playing the part, because there are so many brilliant trans actresses, and I’m sure there are many who could play this part sensationally.” The issue of hormone therapy was a problem, he said, because it wasn’t available in the early 20th century when Elbe transitioned.

If the casting controversy doesn’t get in the way, perhaps Redmayne could see a second Oscar nomination when the movie comes out in 2016.
