B-1 that made emergency landing in Midland, TX flown to OK

The Associated Press - October 27, 2018 9:59 am

MIDLAND, Texas (AP) – An Air Force bomber that made an emergency landing in West Texas nearly six months ago has been repaired and flown to Oklahoma City for additional maintenance.
An Air Force statement says a crew on Friday flew the B-1B Lancer from Midland International Air & Space Port to Tinker Air Force Base.
The plane from Dyess Air Force Base in Abilene was on a training mission May 1 when on-board warnings indicated fires in three areas. All but one was extinguished. The commander, following technical rules, ordered the crew to eject.
Officials say the first ejection seat failed to deploy. The commander then ordered an emergency landing amid warning systems sounding, depressurization and wind noise.
The four crewmembers each received Distinguished Flying Cross medals during a July ceremony at Dyess.
