NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 24/02/2017

A C-130 Hercules aircraft has landed safely at Whenuapai in Auckland after encountering a problem.

The aircraft was being flown from RNZAF Base Auckland at Whenuapai to RNZAF Base Woodbourne, near Blenheim, when an indicator suggested a problem with the aircraft's breaking system.

The crew decided to return to Whenuapai where the aircraft landed without incident, a New Zealand Defence Force spokesman said.

Emergency services were alerted as a precaution and have now stood down.
