Authorities say a minor system malfunction forced an F-15 fighter jet to make an emergency landing in Tulsa.
The public affairs office at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in North Carolina says the jet was returning from a training session at Mountain Home Air Force Base in Idaho on Thursday with another F-15E Strike Eagle.
Tulsa International Airport spokeswoman Alexis Higgins says air traffic controllers were alerted around 11:15 a.m. that one of the fighter jets was having mechanical issues with its hydraulics.
The Tulsa World reports that the aircraft landed without incident at Tulsa International Airport.

The base's statement says these events are common due to the increase in age of the fighter fleet. It says F-15E aircrew is prepared to handle these incidents.
