BANGOR — A plane carrying one of two American aid workers who contracted the Ebola virus in Africa stopped briefly in Maine to refuel.

Bangor Mayor Ben Sprague confirmed that the plane landed Saturday morning at Bangor International Airport on its way to Atlanta.

He said airport staff, law enforcement and public health personnel were on alert in case anything went wrong, but it was a straightforward landing and refuel.

WABI-TV posted video of the plane landing at the airport.

The patient became ill while working in the West African nation of Liberia.
