Military Tanker Makes Emergency Landing

KSAL StaffApril 27, 2013

A military refueling tanker is forced to make an emergency landing after pilots had to shut one of the plane’s four engines down while practicing maneuvers in Kansas.

The Wichita Eagle reports the KC-135 was attempting to return to McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita on Friday afternoon when the engine problem occurred.

The plane was fully loaded with fuel when it was forced to make an emergency landing at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport around 5:30 p.m., shortly after the malfunction was reported.

Wichita Airport Authority spokeswoman Valerie Wise says nobody was hurt and the unexpected landing had no impact on air traffic at Mid-Continent Airport.
