A full-scale exercise taking place at Manhattan Regional Airport will include some traffic adjustments Tuesday.

Airport Director Jesse Romo says the exercise is to test emergency responders’ abilities to respond to an aircraft incident. It’s scheduled from 2 to 4 p.m. Tuesday on the airport property near Wildcat Creek Road. A portion of Wildcat Creek Road will be closed between the business park and Skyway Drive, as a result, with limited access for residents.

During the exercise, officials will use a mock aircraft, fuselage and manikins. Due to COVID-19, only emergency responders will be participating — including Manhattan Fire, RCPD, Riley County Emergency Management, Riley County EMS and several others. It will not impact daily operations.
