Mechanical problem forces military jet to land at Mitchell Int'l Airport

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A military jet landed safely at a base in Milwaukee, after a mechanical problem on a routine training mission.

Four crew members on board escaped injury.

Captain Beth Sawant said a jet from Milwaukee's 128th Air Refueling Wing experienced a problem in its right hydraulic area. It was conducting a mid-air refueling operation at the time.

The craft landed without incident around 2:30 p.m. Thursday at Mitchell International Airport.
