Aspen airport reopens after landing incident Saturday, no injuries
Aspen’s airport has reopened Saturday afternoon following an hour-long closure after a private plane had a “hard landing,” an airport official said.
Caroline Bonynge, the airport’s director of operations, said the private plane “had a hard landing and lost tires, but did not have a belly landing.”
No one was injured in the incident, which happened at 4:30 p.m., she said. The airport reopened just after 5:30 p.m. after the plane was towed from the runway. The plane is a G-200.
With the runway closed, commercial flights were delayed or diverted Saturday afternoon during the busy holiday weekend. Travelers should check with their airline or http://www.aspenairport.com for flight information.
