An Endeavor Canadair CRJ-900 on behalf of Delta Airlines, registration N916XJ performing flight DL-3359 from Atlanta,GA to Lexington,KY (USA) with 73 passengers and 4 crew, performed an ILS approach to runway 22, a windshear alert (15 knots loss) was in effect, ATC reported moderate precipitation at the time after there had been heavy precipitation earlier while the aircraft was about to intercept the localizer. The crew reported on final approach they were pretty much in the clear, light to moderate rain, no windshear, tower advised there was heavy precipitation coming in about 1.5nm from the aerodrome. The aircraft landed on Lexington's runway 22 at 13:13L (17:13Z), the crew then advised they were just on the grass near taxiway A1 (last exit runway 22) and could not move, no other issues. Tower queried whether they were off the side of the runway or past the runway end, the crew reported again they were in the grass near A1. Emergency services responded and found the aircraft off the left edge of the runway short of taxiway A1 (between A2 and A1).

The airport was closed while the passengers disembarked onto soft ground via stairs and were bussed to the terminal.

Lexington Airport released a statement by Endeavor: "Upon landing in Lexington, KY., Endeavor Air flight 3359 from Atlanta, operating as Delta Connection, turned off the active runway and came to a stop in the grassy area between taxiways A2 and A1."
