Photos: Military Plane Makes Emergency Landing

July 24, 2015

[Updated with video] An AC-130 diverted to Bermuda and made an emergency landing this afternoon [July 24] due to what is understood to be an hydraulics issue. It landed at around 2.00pm, with the Bermuda Fire & Rescue Service standing by as the military plane landed. All appeared to have gone well, and military personnel can be seen standing outside the plane.

Update 3.57pm: Video of USAF AC-130 after emergency landing

  1. To everyone, (of all times) who’ve found Bermuda to be in the right place at the right time can say, “God bless Bermuda!” Again, I’m glad to hear all ended up going well…

  2. Theresa Simpson says:

    So glad all is safe…..

  3. Thomas Mahoney says:

    That’s an AC-130. Some serious firepower

  4. Terry says:

    Thomas.
    Do you know what “AC” stands for?.

    • Onion says:

      “Attack” C-130.

      C-130 is the airframe and then this model has cannon/howitzers installed.

    • Pete says:

      “AC” A Cargo Aircraft with Weapon attack capability. That AC-130 carries a series of weapons from 7.62 Gatling machine guns, to a 75mm howitzer cannon.

    • AS YOU ARE says:

      Americas cup

  5. sebring says:

    hey!!!!!!!!!!just looked up this plane wow it worth 132 millions …does any body think we can once again try to talk to the Americans and work out a deal that gives Bermuda an airport terminal and shared use of the run way or even the Brits instead of private ccc I think I heard the porto g told the Americans if the moved out of their bases they would let the Chinese in?

  6. Kevin says:

    Lol @ Pete. Way to try to sound smart and be completely wrong.

    • Phil says:

      Actually, “AC” does stand for “Attack cargo”.

      The AC designation originates from the ww2 era. The original AC variant was the AC47 known as spooky, also was designated ac47 gunship, much like the ac130 gunship, ac130sceptre, ac130spooky and the ghostrider.

  7. Triangle Drifter says:

    Don’t let it sit there too long. The Regiment will want one.

  8. MAKE MY DAY says:

    What on earth do they need 3 fire trucks for!! This “emergency” was probably pre-planned for some R & R!!!

    • B says:

      3 fire trucks are standard for this type if issue if the plane was to have crashed alot more would be needed

  9. RAF says:

    AC does NOT stand for Attack!

  10. ACFE says:

    Please enlighten me then, What does the “A” in AC stand for RAF?
