Kharkov airport cancels flights because of fog
Fog and poor visibility caused cancellation and delays of flights in Kharkov airport. Hundreds of passengers became hostages of bad weather. According to weather forecasters, the situation will improve only on weekend.
However, several planes managed to land: in every case the decision was made personally by the commander and only when fog clarified a little bit. Visibility not less than 350 meters is needed to take-off and land a plane. Now in some places it does not even reach 100 meters.
Dense fog also becomes the reason of frequent traffic accidents. Therefore, traffic police requests pedestrians to be particularly careful, and drivers — not to forget to switch on the lower beam, as well as to switch on warning lights during the stop.
