Charlotte airport: bees, coyotes and fire, oh my!

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -

Things can only get better at Charlotte Douglas International Airport .

Wednesday everything that could go wrong did. A swarm of bees engulfed a US Airways flight causing a two-hour delay. Then a moving sidewalk caught fire in the concourse. The Charlotte Observer says a pack of coyotes caused another short delay. And to put the icing on the cake a flight from Charlotte to Rome had to be diverted back to the states because of mechanical problems.

So far Thursday the airport seems to have moved out of the twilight zone and back to normalcy.

The only ongoing struggle is over who should take control of the airport. The NC General Assembly passed a law giving control of the airport to a regional authority, but a judge recently issued an injunction leaving the airport in control of the city for now.
