Fires Around MSP

Fri Apr 16, 2004 3:37 am

I heard on fox news that there were fires at Fort Snelling State Park. Are the fires causing any delays or problems at MSP? I know The park is just East and South of the airport.

Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing! It's a bonus if you can fly the plane again!!

No delays. Yesterday evening fire broke out in the wetlands along the Minnesota River. The smoke was dense but did not affect operations. Today there is still some smoke in the air but the fires are largely out. I just drove by there -- a few flames visible but nothing major.

Saw some smoke flying in yesterday afternoon, and when driving home to Minnetonka, saw some smoke, north and south. The only delays I see at MSP right now are flights bound for Chicago, due to wind.
The New American is arriving.
