(WASHINGTON) — A World War II-era plane participating in Washington, D.C.’s VE Day flyover made an emergency landing at Reagan National Airport Friday.

The vintage aircraft apparently suffered a hydraulics malfunction and broke formation to land at the airport. It was later pushed off the runway, causing delays.

Some in Washington captured the plane’s departure from formation on video.

Fire trucks quickly arrived on the scene to clear the runway.
