More than 100 passengers are looking for new flights after a Frontier Airline plane had trouble getting off the ground at Will Rogers International Airport Wednesday night.

According to airport officials, 139 passengers were on board the flight at the time it got stuck.

An airport spokesperson told News 9, Frontier Flight 187 was getting ready to take off to Denver when the machine used to back the aircraft up went too far, and got the plane's tire stuck in the mud.

Everyone was then asked to get off the plane. They were allowed back on an hour later, but just to get their luggage.

Passengers are now looking for a new way to get to Denver because Frontier will not offer another flight to the Mile High City until Friday.

We also know News 9's Karl Torp was on the flight. He decided to hit the road and drive to Denver instead of waiting.

Karl told us at one point, the captain came on the loud speaker and told passengers, "well, folks you get what you pay for."
