A fighter jet used for general aviation blew a tire and was stopped on a runway at Fort Wayne International Airport on Monday.
Around 3:45 p.m., NewsChannel 15 was told by multiple viewers that a fighter jet appeared to have made an emergency landing at the airport. One video sent to NewsChannel 15 showed several emergency vehicles including Fort Wayne Fire engines on a runway around the jet.
Airport spokesperson Rebecca Neild told NewsChannel 15 that a F-100 fighter jet based at the airport and used for general aviation blew a tire and was on runway 14-32. Neild said a crew was putting a spare tire on the jet and it was expected to take until after 5 p.m. to get the plane off the runway.
The incident caused some commercial flights to be delayed, and others were diverted, Neild said.
No injuries were reported in the incident.
