There was an emergency landing Monday at the Tallahassee Airport.

Major Jason Little says he was flying on a training run with two other Air Force pilots.

About 45 minutes into a flight from Eglin Air Force Base to Lakeland, one of the two engines in the C-145 showed a lack of oil pressure.

Following emergency procedure, Little shut down that engine.

He then landed the plane on just one engine's power with the additional issue of low cloud cover.

The landing took place without incident.

An Air Force maintenance crew was sent to the airport to repair the aircraft.

Major Little and crew were expecting to return to Eglin Air Force Base in the C-145 after it was repaired.
