I've been informed that some of our people, who were going to be flying out of University Park Airport for a meeting tommorrow in Mississippi, are stuck at the airport because of a plane crash, that a plane tried to land with broken landing gear and wiped out. There isn't anything in the local papers yet about it online. I'm not sure if they're coming back to the office to wait for their rescheduled flights, or are going to just wait it out at the terminal.

Update: the delayed travellers just walked in the front door. Apparently there were no injuries - the plane in question just belly-flopped onto the tarmac, with a minimum of fire, smoke, or even dust. The delay for the airport apparently is more a matter of doing the paperwork and proper reporting than anything really on the emergency side of things.
