Unfortunately, high winds made that a difficult task. Especially for Southwest Airlines Flight 203 bound for Las Vegas. Winds are to blame for a minor accident as the plane collided with a piece of ground equipment. Gratefully, there were no injuries. Winds gusting near 50 mph limited the runways available for take off. According to our affiliate, KOAA, delays were at least 15-30 minutes. However, as runway congestion increased, both outbound and inbound flights could be further affected. https://twitter.com/NWSBoulder/status/1082350034816024576 High wind warnings are in effect for many parts of Colorado, with westerly winds between 30 to 40 miles per hour and gusts up to 65 mph.
