An Ellsworth Air Force Base B-1B Lancer bomber was involved in a collision with two emergency-response vehicles Friday after landing at a Guam air base.
The aircraft landed after declaring an in-flight emergency shortly after its initial departure from Andersen Air Force Base in Guam, according to a news release from the Ellsworth public-affairs office.
The aircraft cleared the active runway, but it was stopped on the taxiway just after noon Guam Standard Time, according to a news story on the Pacific News Center's Web site, www.pacificnewscenter.com.
Air Force officials said the B-1 then began to roll on its wheels and collided with the vehicles. There were no details about how that happened
From Pacific News Center comes word of an accident involving one of the B-1 bombers from Ellsworth Air Force Base in Rapid City, South Dakota.
No injuries involved, fortunately. It seems the crew had just exited the aircraft when it rolled into some support vehicles. (Guess they forgot to put it in "Park") :-)

The U.S. Air Force has clarified initial reports of Friday afternoon's B-1b Lancer bomber incident at Andersen Air Force Base in Yigo. According to Captain Joel Stark with the base's Public Affairs Office, the aircraft was neither assigned to nor deployed at Andersen. He told KUAM News the bomber was en route to its homebase at Ellsworth AFB in Meade County, South Dakota, having recently participated in an air show in Singapore.
