A U.S. Airways plane had to make an emergency landing at Dyess Air Force Base Friday afternoon.
Flight 544 was enroute from Phoenix to Dallas - Fort Worth when it's landing was delayed at DFW by bad weather.
A passenger told us, as the weather delay continued, the plane was told to divert to Abilene.
Abilene Regional Airport manager Don Green says the pilot then had to declare a "fuel emergency" and landed at Dyess about 5:30. The plane was an Airbus 319.
It finally departed for DFW about 7:30.
