BANGOR, Maine —An airplane carrying one American infected with the Ebola virus landed at Bangor International Airport to refuel and resupply Saturday morning.
Our information partners at WABI TV-5 in Bangor report the Phoenix Air Gulfstream 3 landed at BIA just after 7:30 a.m. Saturday. It was the plane’s first stop in the US on its journey to Dobbins Air Force Base in Marietta, GA from Liberia, Africa, where two American aid workers were infected with the deadly disease.
The crew stepped off the aircraft to stretch their legs and receive what appeared to be medical supplies. The American on board worked in a Liberian hospital that treated Ebola patients.
The plane spent a little less than an hour on the ground before departing for Georgia.
This is the first time anyone sick with Ebola has been brought into the United States. So far, more than 700 people have died from the disease in West Africa.
