T-38 loses canopy just after takeoff from Vance

T-38 TalonA T-38 that had just taken off from Vance Air Force Base Wednesday morning lost its front canopy about 10 miles south of the airfield.

The canopy was located at 8:45 a.m. Thursday, June 25, 2015, thanks to an Oklahoma Highway Patrol helicopter pressed into the search, said Linda Frost, public affairs chief at Vance. The four-foot long, clear Plexiglas canopy was located a half-mile north of Bison Road between Cleveland and Oakwood.

The jet was flown by two instructor pilots on an instrument flight bound for Topeka, Kan. When the aircraft lost its canopy at about 10,000 feet, the pilots declared an in-flight emergency and returned immediately to the airfield, where they landed safely, Frost said.
