What comes down... must go up.

Air Force Academy officials say their idle aircraft should be hitting the skies soon.

The Academy's 45 gliders and other types of aircraft were grounded this week after one of their planes experienced engine failure on its way to Florida.

The Twin Otter was forced to make an emergency landing in Oklahoma enroute to picking up the cadet skydiving team.

Investigators say they found various maintenance problems with the plane.
