Tanker Makes Emergency Landing at BIA

BANGOR - A happy outcome after a tense situation at Bangor International Airport.

At about 5 o'clock this afternoon the crew aboard an Air National Guard tanker plane declared an emergency. They apparently had an indicator light problem.

Bangor fire fighters and the Air Guard fire team were waiting when the KC-135 touched down.

No word on what exactly caused the problem, but the plane landed safely.
