At approximately 11:20 AM a Piper Cherokee (PA-28) was attempting to land on runway 3 when it veered left, knocking down a runway sign and coming to rest near a ditch a couple of hundred feet from the runway.

Emergency responders were on the scene shortly thereafter to assist and assess the situation. There were two people aboard the aircraft with no injuries sustained. Kansas Highway Patrol arrived and took a report of the incident.

The runway was closed for a short duration until the aircraft could be cleared from the location. The crosswind runway was still open and active with general aviation aircraft. There were no airline operations scheduled during this event. The runway has since been opened and all operations have resumed to normal.
