If anyone is interested, on Thursday the 17th while flying around the Buckeye MOA (just a couple days before the Dayton Airshow in Dayton, OH), Blue Angel 8 lost an engine and declared an emergency. At the time the long runway at Wright Paterson AFB was closed, and the only other runway available in the area with an arrestor system was that at Springfield Municipal (Home of the OH ANG aka the little know F-16 training sq. known as the Sabre Cats). Blue Angel 8 took the cable and closed the runway at Springfield. At the time a Dutch F-16 student and his instructor were flying and instrument based check ride and were low on gas. To add to the drama because of the situation a tanker (KC-135) was scrambled from Rickenbacker to assist. They later landed at Wright Paterson. All in all a busy day in the skies of central Ohio!
