Mega clickbait here. I am turning into Mark 2.0. Well, this had me on the ground laughing and concerned because it happened right in my home town.

An F-15 made an emergency landing #123rdHoorah

Jokes aside, an F-15 with the 123rd made an emergency landing to KPDX after experiencing gear issues.

According to KOIN6 "At 8:46 a.m., an aircraft emergency alert Level 2 was declared. It is not clear what the exact issue is with the landing gear.

The plane landed with incident around 12:38 p.m. Several emergency vehicles and a fire truck met the plane along with an emergency vehicle at the end of runway 28-L at PDX."

This was strange and funny at the same time because I was not expecting an aviation accident here.
There is only one message I have for them, mission failed we’ll get em next time.

Seriously, this was serious. However, nobody was hurt and the aircraft was fine. Details to come.

Once had an F15 declare emergency fuel over the ocean to which center called for airspace I didn’t even own. Sometimes pilots fail to plan
