FAA grounds all domestic flights Wednesday morning

The FAA has issued an order to ground all domestic airline flights nationwide until 8 am due to a system being down.  A spokesperson from Billy Mitchell Field in Milwaukee confirmed that all flights in the air will continue before landing, but no further flights can take off until 8 am.  


The FAA tweeted Wednesday morning that they are working on restoring the system that is used to communicate with pilots for take-off.


Door County Daily News will update this story as more information becomes available. 


UPDATE from Austin Straubel Field in Green Bay as of 8:45 am:

Some flights at Green Bay Austin Straubel International Airport (GRB) are beginning to resume as the nation’s air system goes back online. Because of the national scope of the situation, we do not expect things will be quickly resolved. While this is a major disruption for travelers, the safety of travelers and our nation’s air system is a top priority.


If your flight has been impacted by this situation, or if you have an upcoming flight today, we urge you to download your airline’s app for the latest information as well as rebooking options.


Austin Straubel is continuing to monitor the effect and impact this is having on our stakeholders.
