MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A Wisconsin National Guard refueling plane landed safely at Mitchell International Airport after reporting mechanical problems.

128th Refueling Wing Lt. Nathan Wallin says the KC-135 was on a routine training mission Thursday when pilots reported engine trouble. One of the plane's four engines had failed. The plane circled above the airport for about 45 minutes to burn fuel before landing safely.
