Take One

Brig. Gen. Steven Vautrain’s first attempt at a final C-5 flight did not work out as planned Aug. 19. The aircraft developed a mechanical problem while doing practice approaches at Bangor International Airport, Maine, and had to return to Westover early. Further complications on final approach resulted in the crew declaring an emergency and having to shut down and egress on the runway. The Westover Fire Department responded, declared the aircraft safe, and it was towed off the runway. Gen. Vautrain successfully completed his fini flight two days later on Aug. 21.
