Plane Carrying Lubbock Congressman May Have Come Under Attack

A military cargo plane carrying members of the U.S. House Agriculture Committee may have come under attack in Iraq. District 19 Congressman Randy Neugebauer of Lubbock was on that plane. Another congressman onboard said the incident happened Thursday after the plane left Baghdad airport.

It's not clear if the plane was under attack, but Nebraska Congressman Tom Osborne said flares were deployed and flashes were seen outside the window.

Neugebauer and the other congressman left the United States December 13th to tour Afghanistan and Iraq.
