Saipan –  At approximately 5:25 am Wednesday morning,  the U.S. Air Force F-16 Falcon, that made an emergency landing at Saipan International Airport Tuesday,  was towed away by U.S. Air Force personnel to allow airfield operations to resume. At 4 p.m. Wednesday the aircraft was moved to the location where maintenance will be accomplished.

Ensuring the safety of all personnel is the top priority as U.S. Air Force maintenance and safety inspectors work with personnel from the Commonwealth Ports Authority to assess the aircraft and determine its fly ability.
