ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) -

Three planes have gotten stuck at snowy Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

According to airport spokesman Michael Conway, crews used trucks to push or pull two regional Delta jets out of the snow Wednesday morning. Passengers were on board.

WDIV-TV reports a corporate jet also got stuck in the snow when it mistakenly turned onto a fire access lane rather than a taxiway.

Snow has been steadily falling for hours in southeastern Michigan, creating slippery surfaces and white-out conditions.

Conway told WWJ-AM that "blinding snow" was "coming down really intensely" at the airport in suburban Romulus.
