MIDLAND, Texas — 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.
