The incident involving Sen. Barack Obama's campaign plane last month was much more serious than the airline or the Federal Aviation Administration said, according to FAA control tower tapes obtained by ABC News.
New audio tapes reveal that candidate's plane was in serious danger.
At the time, an FAA spokesperson said the pilot did not declare an emergency and the airline owner, Midwest Airlines, said safety "was never an issue."
The tapes, broadcast Thursday on ABC News' "World News with Charles Gibson", show otherwise.
