Local media outlets are clueless as usual about the Airport.

Nice change of pace from the lately-daily shootings and stabbings in the 'hood,here.

Title is a little misleading/dramatic since the explosion was at a hydrogen fueling station near the airport and the explosion had no connection to the airport.


Experience is what you get when what you thought would work out didn't!

Only 2 flights were diverted. Both were to BUF.

Unless the title was changed, I think the title is fine.

Now I imagine this had to be very close to the airport to stop all arrivals and departures.

I was listening to the radio when I heard about this. I'm about 5 minutes from the airport, and this was the day after freshmen move-in here at U of R. Lots of people flying in and out of here at that time... I don't know of anybody whose flights were affected. However, as there are 1,200 new freshmen, I'm sure one of their parents' flights could have been the ones that got diverted.
