Equipment failure hits Durango airport

DURANGO — An equipment failure involving a temperature sensor temporarily shut down the Durango airport on Sunday.

According to Federal Aviation Administration regulations, commercial flights may not take off or land without temperature sensors because it affects planes on takeoff or landing.

The Durango Herald reports only one US Airways incoming flight was affected.

Aviation director Kip Turner says the issue with the Automated Surface Observation System was resolved Sunday afternoon and scheduled flights resumed.
