Air Tanker Engine Failure

Shortly after 2pm Sunday, Prescott Fire Department responded to a report of an inbound slurry tanker returning on only one engine.  The P2 Neptune was returning to the Ernest A. Love airport from the 1,000 acre Tee Fire near Black Canyon City when its right main prop engine failed.  

Prescott Fire responded two engines and its aircraft rescue truck to the runway to stage until the aircraft arrived.  The three person crew was able to land the aircraft safely and without injury.
