B52 in emergency landing at RAF Mildenhall

Tue Jun 18, 2019 7:01 pm

Just seen this on the BBC's website:

I love this line: People in the area said the landing "caused a big stir". Classic British understatement!

"It is understood two of the aircraft's eight engines shut down."

Oh no! The dreaded 6 engine approach! :lol:

B-52 with a hyphen. This isn't difficult, people.
