Plane makes emergency landing at Ellsworth Air Force Base

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — An American Airlines jet made an emergency landing at the Ellsworth Air Force Base after the pilot reported possible electrical problems.
Flight 1321 was traveling from Seattle to Chicago when it landed without incident Wednesday around 5:10 p.m.

"The captain had indication of a possible emergency with the electrical power supply and elected to land at Ellsworth," Sgt. Brian Jones, a public information specialist at the base, said Wednesday evening.

There were 57 passengers on board the MD-80 airplane.

American Airlines, which does not serve Rapid City, sent another plane to pick up the passengers, Jones said.

It is unusual for a commercial airliner to land at the Air Force base, Jones said. He did not know why the pilot chose Ellsworth rather than the Rapid City Regional Airport.

Jerome Mitchell, interim airport manager at Rapid City Regional, said all airports accept landing requests from pilots in trouble.

"They must have chosen the base, for reasons I don't know," he said. "It does have a longer runway, quite a bit longer. You can't deny them if they declare an emergency."
