Dayton Airport

The U.S. Air Force says a Thunderbirds pilot was going too fast and without enough stopping distance when he landed on a wet runway at the Dayton airport last June, causing a crash that destroyed an F-16D jet during practice for the Dayton air show.

The Federal Aviation Administration has awarded more than four-million-dollars in grants to improve runways, fencing and other safety and security measures at the Dayton Airport.
