Harrisburg International Airport closed its runway for two hours Friday afternoon after a military plane blew two tires while landing.

The C-130 plane touched down at the airport shortly after 1 p.m. The airport tweeted that the runway has been closed while the plane is removed.

An airport spokesman told ABC27 the C-130 plane blew both right tires when it touched down shortly after 1 p.m. Friday. The tires were repaired, the aircraft was moved, and the runway reopened shortly after 3 p.m.

A spokeswoman for the 193rd Special Operations Wing, the Pennsylvania Air National Guard unit based at the airport, told ABC27 the landing was a routine one before the blowouts. She said it was not a hard or emergency landing.

Travelers were urged to check with their airline for flight status information.
