(FOX 11/CNS) - A military aircraft became disabled on a runway at Long Beach Airport Friday morning, prompting a halt of all commercial air traffic there for about five hours.
The airport's secondary runway was cleared, allowing the resumption of flights by about 4 p.m., the airport announced via Twitter.
At least two inbound flights were diverted and other flights were delayed as Long Beach Fire Department personnel worked to remove the Air Force T-38 training jet, which blew out both tires upon landing about 11:15 a.m., according to airport representative Cassie Chauvel.
No one aboard the jet was injured.
The two diverted flights came from Salt Lake City. A Delta flight landed at Los Angeles International Airport and a Jet Blue flight at Ontario International Airport, according to the airport's Twitter account.
