Air tanker 44 is moved

Air tanker 44, which reportedly lost its brakes when it went off the runway while landing at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport (JeffCo) in Colorado on Friday, was moved off 120th Avenue yesterday. Crews used a crane, a tow truck, and a large flatbed truck to move the P-2 Neptune to a location where it will be examined by the NTSB and the U. S. Forest Service. Thankfully, the pilots walked away from the crash.
