Blue Angel emergency landing

MADISON, Wisc. - A Navy Blue Angels F-18 made an emergency landing at Dane County Regional Airport Tuesday due to a reported hydraulic issue. There were no injuries. The pilot reported the hydraulic issue to air traffic control and requested emergency vehicles on standby, an airport spokesman said. The F-18 landed without issue on runway 36 and came to a stop at the intersection of two runways, temporarily closing one for 35 minutes and one for 45 minutes.
