  2. The Airport Guys 0VG Lee County Released Lee County (0VG) from The Airport Guys has been released. Lee County airport (0VG) is located just outside Jonesville, Virginia which is nestled in the South Western corner of the state of Virginia. Statistics from 2012 show nearly 6000 aircraft passing through the small airport. Being sized the way it is, it is a general aviation airport which means the majority of aircraft that pass through here are single or twin engine propeller driven aircraft. Small jets and helicopters also tend to pass through the airport but with a runway of only 5000 feet (1524 metres) it makes it a challenge to make any large private jets, such as a Gulfstream to land or take off at this airport.

  19. Bizjets, this is a little scary right now. Hoping for the best for those 16 on board. A luxury jet with 16 people on board blew two tires as it took off from a runway at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey Tuesday, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. No injuries were immediately reported aboard the Gulfstream Aerospace GLF-4 aircraft, which was departing for Luton, England when the tires blew before 11 a.m. The aircraft did get into the air, and the pilot was then in a holding pattern, circling the airport for some time as emergency crews assembled below. The plane was then diverted to Westfield-Barnes Regional Airport in Westfield, Massachusetts, near Springfield.
