Since its inauguration in 1967, the Madison County Airport in London, Ohio, has been a central hub for aviation fans in the central Ohio region. Spanning 148 acres, this airport houses numerous hangars and a single runway, protecting hundreds of planes, including historically significant aircraft, alongside unique cars and personal possessions.

The Tornado's Toll

On the morning of February 28, 2024, a tornado bore down on central Ohio, setting its sights on the Madison County Airport. The devastating force of the storm completely destroyed two of the newer hangars and significantly damaged four to five others, leaving the entire facility damaged. Among the properties affected by the tornado, Madison County Airport appeared as one of the most severely impacted. SERVPRO® was one of the first calls made after seeing the devastation. 

SERVPRO's Rapid Response

Upon surveying the extent of the tornado's destruction, SERVPRO was promptly called to action. Our production manager arrived on-site within two hours of the initial report, closely followed by our skilled technicians. Collaborating with local trash management services, our dedicated teams began the task of restoration.

The Restoration Journey

Committing to 12-hour shifts, SERVPRO's technicians sorted through the wreckage, retrieving planes, fragments, and the personal effects of pilots and hangar owners, salvaging whatever was possible. With our reconstruction specialists on the ground, we started on the clean-up operation, clearing debris and laying the groundwork for the airport's restoration.
