A British Airways jet carrying British Prime Minister Tony Blair overshot a runway at the Miami International Airport on Tuesday, but the plane was not damaged and no injuries were reported, officials said. British Airways flight 209 from Heathrow Airport in London ran over a couple of airfield lights after landing around 6:30 p.m. (2330 GMT), but did not leave the pavement and returned to the gate under its own power, airport spokesman Marc Henderson said.
