BANGOR, Maine — A Maine Air National Guard refueling tanker is back on the ground after reporting smoke in the cockpit.

A Bangor International Airport spokeswoman says the KC-135 landed safely around 12:30 p.m. after declaring an emergency.

Bangor is home to the Maine Air National Guard’s 101st Air Refueling Wing.

Lt. Col. Debbie Kelley, the wing’s executive officer, says the KC-135 was on a training mission when the problem surfaced. She says mechanics are currently checking out the plane.
