Air Tankers Working Hard
Air Tanker takes off from Prince George Airport- photo 250 News
Prince George, B.C.- The runway at Prince George Airport is busy, as air tankers take off and land to reload as wildfires rage in the province.
With the closure of the Williams Lake Airport because of the threat of wildfires, the two air tankers normally stationed there are working out of the Prince George Airport.
Along with the two air tankers normally stationed here, that brings to four the number of tankers working out of Prince George.
The take offs and landings of the air tankers are not having any impact on regular flights in and out of Prince George. There have been some delays noted for planned Central Mountain Air flights, but those delays are not related to the air tanker operations at YXS.
As always check with your airline before heading to the airport for arrivals or departures to ensure the arrival or departure time of your flight.
