MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Warnings of a “catastrophic disruption” to the air travel industry have subsided, for now. AT&T and Verizon will roll out their 5G coverage countrywide Wednesday, but it won’t happen near some airports. READ MORE: What Is ‘Wordle’? And Why Is It So Popular? We wanted to know: Why is 5G a concern around airplanes? And what solutions are in the works? WCCO’s Jeff Wagner got a lesson in aviation.
