Washington (CNN) - Even the commander-in-chief takes a back seat to bad weather. Wednesday, just as Air Force One was approaching Hartford’s Bradley International Airport to land, the pilot executed a missed approach and circled around.
Federal Aviation Authority spokeswoman Laura Brown tells CNN, "The plane had not yet reached the runway and the weather was 'bad' so the pilot circled around and lined up for another landing."
This happens all the time. These are AF pilots.
@enough – hebhas pretty much done, ithout the help of the party of hell no, a lot of what he said he would do.
Best Pilots in the world!! Bar none!
And the republicans response to this will be: I can not believe the president is wasting more tax payers money by not forcing the pilot of AF1 to land on the first try. President Obama is out of touch with the american people and the cost of gas and this waste of gas will need to be investigated by congress. This could be an impeachable offense.
@ Realistic... for crying out loud, you sound like a whiney 3-year-old. You take this stuff WAY too seriously.
Best president we've ever had. Stay safe. We need you 4 more years to get rid of Dubya's mess.
It must be campaign time again – all media will now report on the smallest detail of those deemed newsworthy.
Vote for a 2nd party next time around, and do not listen to the repub-democ- spoon-fed media. For a real real change.
