April 21, 2010

Fire and rescue units were called to Hagerstown Regional Airport north of Hagerstown on Wednesday morning as a precautionary move for a Northrop Grumman plane having engine trouble, said Phil Ridenour, fire chief for the airport's fire department.

One of a P-3's four engines had gone out, Ridenour said.

The plane landed safely, he said.

The call was issued at 10:28 a.m. and airport fire officials had cleared the scene by 10:43 a.m., he said.

Northrop Grumman has an operation on Showalter Road near the airport. Workers there perform maintenance and modifications to P-3 surveillance aircraft for the U.S. Navy and U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
