Bomber grounded in Indiana after engine problem

– A World War II bomber that appeared at a weekend festival in northeastern Indiana will spend more time there than planned after one of its engines blew a cylinder during flight.

The Herald Republican reports the problem occurred during the Angola Balloons Aloft event Friday. Passengers reported hearing a pop and seeing smoke and flames coming from the engine of the B-25 Yankee Warrior.

Norm Ellickson of the Yankee Air Museum in Ypsilanti, Michigan, says the plane and its passengers weren’t in danger.

The museum plans to send the engine to Michigan to be rebuilt, then re-install it at the Tri-State Airport so the plane can return home.

The work is expected to cost about $60,000 and will force the bomber to miss one air show in Michigan.
