CAFB jet lands successfully after in-flight emergency
CAFB, Miss. (WCBI) – A pilot landed a T-38C jet successfully at Columbus Air Force Base this morning following an in-flight emergency.
This is the same type of plane that crash-landed in Lowndes County just 10 days ago.
The Public Affairs office at CAFB reported that the emergency happened around 10:45 this morning.
The pilot made a gears-up landing. A gears-up landing is also a belly landing, sometimes meaning the landing gear was not fully extended.
The pilot and ground personnel are safe.
CAFB expects to release more information as it becomes available.
