A B-1B Lancer from Dyess Air Force Base made an emergency landing Tuesday in Midland.

According to Dyess, the crew experienced “an in-flight emergency” around 1:30 p.m. and had to land the bomber at Midland International Air & Space Port.

The airport’s director told KWES, our news partner in Midland, that the call came in as “an engine flameout.”

Someone who works at the airport posted a photo on Instagram that said a "bomber with engine problems dropped into MAF."

None of the four crew members were hurt, according to Dyess.

A base spokesperson also said the bomber was not carrying any munitions.

The bomber will remain at the Midland airport "until it can be safely returned to Dyess," according to a new release.
