Hartsfield-Jackson in the news

Though the Airport’s Airside Operations team monitors the runways constantly to remove any debris that could damage aircraft, Hartsfield-Jackson holds an annual event to draw awareness to the dangers of foreign object debris (FOD).

This year’s FOD Walk on May 12 drew more than 200 volunteers — and attention from members of the media. WSB-TV covered the ninth annual event, and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution put a photo gallery of FOD-gatherers on ajc.com.
