6 state airports could see control towers close

GARY – The Federal Aviation Administration says control towers at airports in Gary, Muncie, Bloomington, Terre Haute, Columbus and West Lafayette could close if federal budget cuts take effect Friday.

The Times of Munster reports Gary-Chicago International Airport interim Director Steve Landry says the control tower there is set to close Friday. Landry says the airport will remain open, but airplanes will have follow guidelines for landing without a control tower.

Purdue University Airport Director Betty Stansbury told the Journal & Courier that if the FAA closes the control tower the university would look for other methods to keep it open.

WTHI-TV reports the Terre Haute control tower will be unstaffed part of the time.

The FAA also says the overnight shift in Fort Wayne could be eliminated.
