Brittney Griner back on US soil after 10 months in Russian prison

The WNBA star landed at San Antonio’s Kelly Field Air Force Base around 5:40 a.m. ET following her release to US officials in a prisoner swap for notorious Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout in the United Arab Emirates.

Griner and three other people were seen getting off the Gulfstream G550 corporate jet, which landed at Kelly Field after a flight from the United Arab Emirates via Manchester in the United Kingdom.

The athlete — who was wearing basketball shoes, leggings and a hat as she emerged from the plane — was in “very good spirits” upon touching back down in her home state of Texas, National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said.

“Our team that flew back with her and met her on the ground tell us that she was in very, very good spirits when she got off the plane, and appeared to be obviously in good health,” Kirby said on the “Today” show.
