KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) — A jet fighter had a problem landing at the Oregon Air National Guard base in Klamath Falls.

Master Sgt. Jennifer Shirar says the pilot was unhurt after arresting cables were used to help stop the F-15C when it came in for a landing Tuesday afternoon after a routine training flight.

She says a board of investigating officers is looking into the incident. Details of the damage to the aircraft or the cause of the incident have not been released.

Shirar says they are not yet releasing whether the pilot was regular Air Force or Air National Guard.

Kingsley Field is home base to the Oregon Air National Guard's 173rd Fighter Wing, which trains jet fighter pilots.
