Charlotte Douglas International Airport has reopened its fourth runway after a review ordered by the Federal Aviation Administration.
The Charlotte Observer reported the reopening of the airport's shortest runway comes after the FAA had ordered it closed because of safety concerns.
Several New Hanover County and Wilmington agencies participated in the response. About 50 people volunteered to be victims of the simulated plane crash, which caught on fire and separated on the tarmac at ILM. The victims role played, each assigned different injuries.
