TOWN OF MAINE (WBNG) — Crews at Greater Binghamton Airport were hard at work Sunday, cleaning up after the major weekend storm.
Airport Operations Specialist Michael Norton says his crew were working on the snow since it started Saturday. They began when the accumulation reached about a half an inch.
They used brooms, snow blowers and huge plowing machines to cleanup the massive amount of space.
He says this storm posed an extra challenge.
Norton says, “If you have ice it’s a lot more difficult to land and take off on ice then it is to land and take off on dry snow.”
However, crews made sure to get the job done.
“We make it possible for airplanes to land and get to where they need to go on the airfield.”
