Blackhawk lands in Tucson neighborhood

TUCSON - A Blackhawk helicopter made a precautionary landing Friday in a southside neighborhood. Customs and Border Protection says it happened at 8:35 a.m. when the crew encountered an in-flight safety concern.

The Blackhawk crew landed south of Irvington Road between S. Lostan Ave. and S. Liberty Ave. in order to inspect the aircraft. CBP says everything checked out okay--so the crew took off and returned to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.
