GREENWOOD -- Bright lights may be common in Hollywood or on the streets of Chicago, but not in the cornfields around tiny Greenwood in rural McHenry County.
So it's no wonder that neighbors were curious last week when they saw large lighting trucks, flashing lights and police cars at Galt Airport, a one-time dairy farm about a half-mile north of town.
Michael Stanard, owner of the airfield that is home to about 100 planes, said there were no disasters. Most of the police cars were for pretend cops--among the 125 cast and crew members from the Fox drama "Prison Break," which was at the airport to tape scenes for an episode to be broadcast in June.
The TV series has been using the former Joliet Correctional Center as its main backdrop. New episodes begin airing Monday, but the crew was mum about what, if anything, a small airfield has to do with Michael Scofield, played by Wentworth Miller, and his elaborate get-into-jail-to-bust-his-brother-from-D eath-Row scheme.
A handful of "PB" fans who got onto the closed set said the filming involved a police chase and a jet taking off at night.
Will escapees from the fictional Fox River State Penitentiary be on board?
