A plane full of passengers skidded off a runway in Peru and burst into flames.

Amazingly, all 141 people on board the plane survived.

It happened Tuesday as the plane tried to land at an airport 200 miles from Lima.

Officials say it caught fire because of the forced landing.

The pilot is being praised for averting a major disaster.

It's believed that strong winds may have pushed the plane off the runway.
