What an airport looks like during an Earthquake!

We just were hit by a 7.0 quake and it’s still going lol
After our quake The State of Alaska did not allow aircraft to land, they just recently reopened our airspace but the Anchorage terminal is not accessible at this time due to road damage.

So what does an airport look like during an earthquake? This video explains it! Pretty sweet some one captured it!

That’s pretty scary! Good call from AK to stop air traffic. At least it’s back up and running!

I went up in the tower at KBOS, they said that in the wind the entire tower bends a bit, so definitely doesn’t sound fun if there was an earthquake…

Wonder how all the cargo flights are going to be affected by this. There are constantly DHL 747s to and from PANC to KCVG. Interesting to see how this plays out in the height of cargo season. Of course, stay safe!

True true. Glad everyone’s okay according to reports but this could affect a lot of cargo schedules like Cbro said. Longer flights from HKG MIA and much more may be slightly delayed.

I was 122 miles away as the crow flies in homer AK and we evacuated the airport locked it up and got to high ground tsunami was projected to hit at 1145 am but was cancelled around 1030

I think people should hear this too

It’s TRACON during the earthquake


I’m glad this didn’t happen to PANC!
Hope everyone is ok.
