Military Plane Makes Emergency Landing In Mass.

Posted: Updated:

CHICOPEE, Mass. (AP) - A U.S. military transport plane that lost cabin pressure while flying over the Atlantic Ocean has made an emergency landing at its home base in western Massachusetts.

Master Sgt. Tim Huffman says the C-5B plane that was traveling from Germany to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware landed safely at Westover Air Reserve Base in Chicopee just before 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

The base says a young woman was taken to a local hospital with a minor injury.

The plane lost cabin pressure at 34,000 feet shortly after 11 a.m. while flying from Ramstein Air Base with 25 passengers and crew.

The incident prompted the military to deploy emergency vehicles at Pease Air National Guard Base in Portsmouth, N.H.; Hanscom Air Force Base in Bedford, Mass.; and Westover Air Reserve Base.
