A US Air Force A-10 attack aircraft made a successful emergency landing at the Carbon County Airport Wednesday morning shortly after 10 a.m.

The specific cause of the emergency was not immediately available. However, the plane was apparently unable to taxi from the north end of the runway 18-36, the airport's main take-off and landing runway. There was no smoke or fire apparent, nor any visible damage to the exterior of the plane.

The plane was not carrying armaments under its wings.

The Price Fire Department scrambled three engines and crews. Price Police, Carbon County deputy sheriffs and the county ambulance also stood by on the tarmac.
