Congratulations to Springfield-Branson National Airport for a successful disaster.
A successful disaster drill, that is, for airport, Willard, and Springfield fire departments and Cox and Mercy hospitals.
This year staged a mock airplane on fire that had to be put out, and then actors in the wreckage portraying victims.
At the old terminal, 20 actors were passengers who were dead or injured, and first responders were able to practice significant emergency response. Springfield-Branson National Airport is a likely location for a landing disaster situation because they have a long runway designed to accommodate a big airliner being able to land.
