UPDATE: The UPI reports that a “U.S. military transport plane landed safely at Westover Air Reserve Base, Mass., where officials said fears of an in-flight emergency had been unfounded.”
There were no injuries or in-flight emergency despite the loss of cabin pressure.
Several sources have reported on this breaking news story.
Here’s the UPI version:
Crews at three U.S. air bases were preparing Saturday for an emergency involving a military transport plane, officials said.
Crews were staging at Hanscom Air Force Base, Mass., Pease Air National Guard Base, N.H., and Westover Air Reserve Base, Mass, because passengers onboard the C-5A Bravo transport plane traveling from Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany may require medical attention following an in-flight emergency, CBS News reported.
Master Sgt. Exanderton at Hanscom Air Force Base told CBS about 25 people — including two children — were onboard when the plane experienced sudden decompression in its cabin.
More than two dozen ambulances were being deployed at Hanscom, CBS said.
