Smoke Fills Cockpit at 128th
Per Jon Byman of

"Flight crews evacuated a KC-135 refueling jet at Milwaukee's 128th Airlift wing after smoke began to fill the cockpit during pre-flight checks Thursday morning.

The 128th is located on the east end of Mitchell International.

The 128th says fire crews were called in. It appears a circuit on the jet fried.

Everyone is okay and the plane has been released back to the maintenance staff"

It could be almost any circuit, as during pre-flight that is when you start turning things on.
