Hydraulic Malfunction Makes Him Miss Last Campaign Stop
A chartered airplane carrying Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen,
his wife, and eight staffers to a campaign event Monday night
experienced mechanical problems just as the plane was preparing to
land in Jackson.
Pilots of the 12-seat turboprop aircraft, type unknown at this
time, reported problems with the plane's hydraulic system after
they extended the landing gear. The plane's crew opted to abort the
approach and head back to Nashville, and its longer runway.
The plane landed smoothly, and there was just enough hydraulic
pressure for the brakes to bring the plane to a normal stop.
The governor told the Associated Press, "The two pilots on the
plane were extraordinarily professional"

at work in Nashville, encouraging people to vote him back into
