KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A winter storm caused a scary moment for air travelers in Missouri  Tuesday.
A Southwest Airlines flight arriving at Kansas City International Airport got stuck in a snowdrift as the plane was taxing to the gate.

Travel became a challenge in the air Tuesday as the snow piled up at KCI.
This plane - Southwest flight 305 from Denver even got stuck in a pile of snow on the taxiway.

Passengers had to be bussed off the plane and back to the terminal.
Several flights in and out of KCI were cancelled and many others delayed.

And passengers coming in from Milwaukee, Wisconsin are shocked by the weather.
"I came here because I thought I would be going south and it would be warmer And it's really not, ten below zero when? Tomorrow or something like that?"

As Southwest 305 had to be towed into the terminal - most airport operations continued as usual.

But even the passengers admit it's a little more nerve-wracking to fly in all this snow.
"It's kind of crazy when you come down. And when you start to drop through the clouds there's a lot of snow and I haven't seen that much snow usually when I fly."

Winter weather led to thousands of flights being canceled across the U.S. Tuesday and Wednesday.
