KC-135 Pilot Speaks about Emergency Landing

By Rachael Glaszcz. CREATED May 16, 2013

Captain Jason Park of the 128th Air Refueling Wing was piloting a KC-135 that had to make an emergency landing.

One of the four engines quit working so the pilots made the quick decision to land at General Mitchell International Airport instead of following their original plan of flying to Rockford, Illinois.

Captain Park and Lieutenant Nathan Wallin appeared on Wisconsin Tonight to talk about what goes through a pilot's mind in those types of emergency situations.
