Plane Crash

Sioux City officials say they’re working to fix several safety issues at the local airport.

The Federal Aviation Administration is proposing a $145-thousand dollar fine against the Sioux Gateway Airport, claiming it found several safety violations during three inspections.

The inspections in 2018 and 2019 found issues with how the airport maintains markings on its runways and taxiways; and surface areas near the runways were not properly graded. A spokeswoman for the F-A-A says the agency is in the process of talking with the airport.
