Re(1): one of our c27 damaged

WACO, Texas (KWTX) A Royal Australian Air Force C-27J remained on a main runway at the Waco airport late Tuesday afternoon after two tires blew out as the pilot made a landing after a training mission.

The airport has been closed since the mishap and officials now say it won't reopen until around 7 p.m.

American Eagle commuter flights out of the airport were canceled.

An assistant Waco fire chief said the airplane’s crew had attempted a landing late Monday night, but the plane may have touched down short of the runway and damaged two tires.

City of Waco spokesman Larry Holze said the plane’s crew was "shooting touch-and-goes" late last night when at about 12:35 a.m. Tuesday when the aircraft blew a couple of tires.

A spokesman for the U.S. Air Force Air Education and Training Command said Tuesday morning the crew was performing a training mission and was landing at the Waco airport when the two tires blew out.

The public information officer would not give any details about the mission, and would not say now many crew members were on board, although a normal crew for that aircraft is a pilot and co-pilot, and a loadmaster, when needed.
