KANSAS CITY, Mo. — If you saw a strange plane in the sky Thursday afternoon, you weren’t alone.

A KC-10 Extender Tanker from the 305th Air Mobility Wing in Lakehurst, New Jersey, stopped at the Kansas City International Airport for some drills.

Airport spokesman Joe McBride said the tanker, which is used to fuel other aircraft in flight, stopped by KCI unexpectedly.

“It was a surprise to have such a large visitor in the pattern today. It sure made for an interesting sight because it was such a large plane,” he said.
