Runways Reopen After Plane Problem at Bradley Airport

Flights have resumed at Bradley International Airport after an Air National Guard plane experienced a tire malfunction while landing Tuesday evening, prompting officials to close the runways.

Airport officials identified the plane in question as an Air National Guard C-130. Spokesperson Alisa Sisic said the plane landed in an area that required airport staff to shut down runways.

One runway reopened for departures around 7 p.m. The airport was accepting arrivals again as of 7:45 p.m., after the C-130 was moved to a place where it would no longer affect air traffic.
