Staff reports Updated: April 18, 2011 at 12:00 am

An Air Force C-130 cargo plane developed instrument panel problems, declared an emergency and landed safely at 12:38 p.m. Monday at the Colorado Springs Airport.

The four-engine turbo prop plane had 10 persons aboard and five hours of fuel remaining, according to Mark Earle, director of aviation at the airport.

The C-130 is based at Peterson Air Force Base and was on a training mission, Earle said. It landed without incident with crash crews on stand by.

On Sunday, a California Air National Guard cargo plane - a C-130 J - made a safe, but rough landing Sunday at the Colorado Springs Airport because of a problem with its rear landing gear.
