Midway Airport shuts down

The power went out on the runway on the evening of June 28, canceling and diverting flights and stranding passengers in hot airplanes or in terminals for hours. Here's how it all played out on social media along with a look at the aftermath.

  1. Ok this is a new one for me. On the plane about to take off at Chicago Midway and all the lights at the airport suddenly go out. No lights on the runways. No lights on the taxiways.
  2. I'm here at O'hare, but supposed to be at Midway. Plane left Atlanta an hour late and then when we got near Midway, the airport lost power. We circled for another 45 minutes and then the pilot said he decided to go to O'hare because he was running out of gas. Good idea genius. Now to get my car from Midway. Ugh!!!!!!
  3. UH OH somebody forgot to pay the electric bill at Midway airport. :-/)
