What TG's are being used? Lots of traffic on Weld Fire Ground 10. (1925) But I can't tell if it's airport related or something else.

Main Disp, FG 3, FG 7 and FG 10 so far, can't tell if it's part of the Greeley training this weekend but everyone is running emergent so I don't think so but also no updates regarding the incident or any patients, just hearing discussion of foam units and trailers.

WELD COUNTY - Authorities say man in his late 60s walked away from a plane crash on Saturday morning.

The Weld County Sheriff's Department says Mark Johnson was flying his 1956 De Havilland Venom, a vintage aircraft, when it lost power.

Deputies say Johnson tried to perform a belly landing in an alfalfa field, but while landing he hit an irrigation ditch, which made for an extremely bumpy landing.

Authorities called it a basic belly landing.

Johnson took off from Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport earlier in the day.
