Yeager Airport Control Tower Closed Last Week

The air traffic control tower at Yeager Airport was closed from 8 pm until 9:30 pm last Friday due to lack of personnel.

There were only two controllers on duty, instead of the required three.

One controller called in sick and another left before the shift was over due to illness.

18 airplanes took off and landed safely during the shut down.
