Plane Runs Into Terminal at Grand Island Airport


Fire crews were called to the Central Nebraska Regional Airport in Grand Island after a single-engine airplane ran into an airport terminal.

Emergency crews arrived on scene around 3 p.m. Wednesday where fuel was leaking from the aircraft.

Airport Executive Director Mike Olson says the pilot had started the engine and was preparing to taxi onto a runway when he lost power to the brakes and nose wheel control.

A window broke on the plane and the nose was dented, but no injuries were reported.

Records say the plane had landed in Grand Island on its way from Chicago to the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport near Broomfield, Colo.
