Air Force: Fighter jet makes emergency landing at Ohio base

Posted: Updated:

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - An Air Force base spokesman says an F-16C fighter jet had to make an emergency landing in Ohio because of a hydraulic leak.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/2nUnYOB) reports the jet landed safely Tuesday at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton. Base spokesman Bryan Ripple told the newspaper that the jet was one of two from the Toledo-based 180th Fighter Wing that landed at the base shortly after 10 a.m.

Firefighters were standing by near the main runway as a precaution when the jet landed. Ripple said that is the normal procedure for any in-flight emergency declared by a pilot.

The fighter wing is a unit of the Ohio Air National Guard.
