WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Officials at an airport where a massive cargo plane mistakenly landed and caused damage to its runway say repairs should be completed by the summer.

KAKE-TV reports (https://bit.ly/YF6eZB ) Jabara Airport officials held a meeting Monday night with aircraft owners and operators to discuss a timeline for the work. Officials say construction to repair the cracked pavement will begin in the spring.

A 747 cargo plane, called the Dreamlifter, caused the damage nearly a year ago. It was supposed to land at McConnell Air Force Base, 9 miles to the south.

Officials didn’t say how much the runway repairs would cost but say the Dreamlifter’s operator will pay for them.
