“said the little prayer”
Plane returned with US Vice Harris
US Vice President Kamala Harris’s government plane was taking off when people on board heard a strange sound. After a while the machine has to be turned over. Kamala Harris’s words after the incident are a relief.
The start of Kamala Harris’ first overseas trip as US Vice President was delayed due to a technical problem with the plane. Less than half an hour after taking off from Andrews Air Base near Washington on Sunday, spokesman Simone Sanders said the government plane would have to return to the airport and replace the plane that carried Harris and his fellow passengers to Guatemala City. will take.
The accompanying journalists reported an unusual noise during take-off, but the landing was “totally normal”. Back on the ground, the vice president told reporters, “We’ve all prayed a little, but we’re fine.”
Harris’ visits to Guatemala and Mexico on Monday and Tuesday will focus on migration and economic cooperation. US President Joe Biden has taken the initiative to stop Harris’ emigration to America.
The keel of the plane is reminiscent of various breakdowns by German government aircraft. Chancellor Angela Merkel suffered a serious breakdown at the end of 2018, when she was on her way to the G20 summit in Argentina with the government plane “Konrad Adenauer”. A faulty component – a central switching unit of the on-board electronics – paralyzed two radio systems that are supposed to replace each other in an emergency. The plane flying into Berlin had to turn back and was directed to Cologne/Bonn airport.
After a four-month general overhaul of the government aircraft, the first commercial flight broke down again in April 2019. After a nine-hour flight from Berlin to New York with Federal Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, a tire burst upon landing so that the Airbus A340 could not get into the parking position on its own. However, for some time the aircraft of the German government remained imperceptible.
