Military Plane Makes Emergency Landing in Massachusetts

iStock/Thinkstock(CHICOPEE, Mass.) -- A massive C-5 military transport plane made an emergency landing in Massachusetts Saturday.

No injuries were reported. Twenty-five people were on board.

According to ABC's Luis Martinez, the emergency developed during the flight from Germany to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware. Martinez reports that the plane allegedly lost cabin pressure while flying over the Atlantic.

As officials weren't sure where the plane would make the emergency landing, fire and emergency vehicles were deployed at three military bases in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. The Dover-bound plane ended up landing at its home base, Westover, in western Massachusetts.
