T+L's Most Dangerous U.S. Airports
No. 2: Cleveland Hopkins
Runway Incidents: 45
Close Calls: While landing at Hopkins in February 2007, a Delta Connection commuter flight skidded off a snow-covered runway and smashed through an airport perimeter fence.
The Fix: CLE has completed a major extension of its main runway, a project that also eliminated crossover with a smaller runway and provided pilots and air traffic controllers with a less confusing takeoff and landing environment.
