Aircraft getting in and out of Easterwood Airport were slowed down Friday afternoon after the main runway was shut down. That’s after a private plane blew a tire.
College Station fire department battalion chief Greg Rodgers says the pilot and two passengers were not injured, and the plane had no other damage.
Airport manager Josh Abramson says aircraft was diverted to the alternate runway.
COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX)- There were no injuries reported after a private plane slid off the runway at Easterwood Airport Friday afternoon.
College Station firefighters responded to an aircraft emergency at the airport.
Upon landing one of the main wheels of a Cessna 414A Chancellor plane buckled causing the aircraft to slide.
Due to the softened ground, it took a few hours to extract the plane and realign the wheel.
There were 3 people on the plane, but none of them are seriously hurt.
Just before 7 p.m. Friday, airport director Joshua Abramson said the aircraft was cleared and the runway and airport were in full operation.
