Alert III at AZO

Kalamazoo-Battle Creek International Airport had a minor Alert III on Sunday, July 19th, 2020. A small privately owned aircraft was performing touch and go when it bounced too hard and broke off the front wheel causing the aircraft to nose into the edge of the runway/safety area.

There were no injuries, casualties or fires. A slight fuel leak from the overflow tank was noticed which AZO ARFF immediately plugged.
