BELGRADE - Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport is back up to speed Wednesday afternoon after an aircraft incident closed one runway.
According to Airport Director Brian Sprenger, a tire burst on a Cessna as it landed and the aircraft went off the side of the runway, but in a runway safety area. The incident closed the Air Carrier Runway.
Crews had to move the aircraft out of that area to reopen the runway which took a little over an hour. Sprenger said 3 outbound and 3 inbound flights had to be delayed.
No injuries to the six people on board the aircraft. The runway was reopened at about 3:15 pm.
