Wichita Airport Authority Plans Disaster Exercise

The Wichita Airport Authority is planning a large-scale disaster exercise Tuesday, featuring the mock crash of a 737 aircraft.

Tomorrow's exercise begins at 9 a.m. and will be just north of K-42 between two runways at the Wichita airport.

The exercise will include 300 people from various emergency management agencies.

The Federal Aviation Administration requires commercial airports to practice responding to simulated disasters at least every three years.

Airport officials will tweet about the exercise using the Twitter handle @FlyICT and #ICTdrill.
