Emergency Landing at Vanderberg


For the second time in a few years, a Cessna 206 plane operated by Sky Dive Santa Barbara out of the Lompoc Airport made an emergency landing at Vandenberg Air Force Base. According to Vandenberg officials, four people were on the plane last Thursday afternoon when it landed safely with a blown engine and no power, though one crew member had jumped out with his parachute at 2,000 feet and safely landed in a field nearby. The plane will be disassembled and taken back to Lompoc soon.
