Seven arriving flights were diverted to Los Angeles International Airport and Ontario International Airport, according to John Wayne spokeswoman Jenny Wedge. The main runway closed for about an hour after the incident, which was reported  around 10:30 a.m., Wedge said. No injuries were reported.

In addition to that famously steep takeoff from John Wayne Airport, passengers aboard some departing jets in Orange County might be asked to endure multiple turns as pilots take a zigzag course as they lift off over Newport Beach. The zigzag takeoff pattern - meant to reduce jet noise in the beach city - would be a first in the continental U.S. Over the decades, the city has fought and sued in an effort to tame noise from the commercial airport, and flights in and out of John Wayne are now some of the most strictly controlled in the country.

After nearly two years of closed-door negotiations, Newport Beach Mayor Keith Curry announced Thursday that the strict curfews governing John Wayne Airport's operations could remain in place through 2035 if a proposed airport settlement agreement extension is approved. But a cap on the number of passengers and flights that can pass through the airport would be allowed to rise starting in 2021. "This is a balanced approach that will follow the law and maintain the protection of our community," Curry said at a news conference in the Newport Beach Police Department auditorium.
