Workers Spend Weekend Cleaning Up Small ND Airport

Posted: Updated:


KILLDEER, N.D. (AP) - Volunteers spent the weekend cleaning up debris from a storm that destroyed a hangar and damaged three planes at a small western North Dakota airport.
The storm earlier in the week produced 90 mph winds and left debris strewn around the Dunn County Airport north of Killdeer.

Workers filled two dump trucks full of rubble and scrap metal on Saturday.

Airport spokesman Mike Schollmeyer says that while the storm left "a big mess," the end result wasn't a disaster. He says the hangar was old and scheduled for demolition, and there were already plans to repair the runway.

Schollmeyer says the office and electronics room were salvaged.
he airport has seen a surge in use because of the energy boom in the region.
