Smoke in the cockpit forces emergency landing of Air Force plane
An Air Force plane made an emergency landing Thursday night at Milwaukee’s Mitchell International Airport. The aircraft landed safely after being forced to make the emergency landing about 8:15 p.m. Airport officials told WISN 12 News the Air Force plane isn’t based in Milwaukee and that it was able to taxi off the runway.
The initial report for incident indicated there was smoke in the cockpit, but that has not been confirmed.
After an inspection on the west side of the airport where the plane landed, crews towed the plane across the airport grounds to the 128th Refueling Wing, which is customary for military aircraft.
