Around 9:30 Tuesday morning a call came to Rutherford County Emergency Medical Services about an airplane that hit a hangar at the Smyrna Airport.

The public information officer at the airport told WGNS News that it was not a serious situation. She said the incident involved small private aircraft that were being moved around by mechanics inside a hangar when the "entanglement" occurred. There were no injuries.


The Smyrna Airport is the third largest in Tennessee. Only Nashville and Memphis International Airports are larger. It also has the distinction of being the busiest general aviation in the state. Prior to March, 1971, it was known as Sewart Air Force Base and has capabilities to handle virtually any size of aircraft. One of the two major runways is 8,048-feet and the other is 5,546-feet. The huge complex is on 1,700 acres of land.
