The pilot of an F-15D was taken to the hospital in Klamath County after what the Air National Guard called an in-flight emergency Monday afternoon that resulted in the fighter jet leaving the runway.

Kingsley Field in Klamath Falls, which hosts the 173rd Fighter Wing, posted to Facebook that the emergency happened around 3:00 p.m. 

The F-15D “exited the runway” after landing at Kingsley Field.
