Air Force One aborts landing, second try successful

(CNN) - Air Force One, flying President Barack Obama to a campaign event, aborted an initial landing attempt in Ohio on Wednesday due to weather conditions.

The jumbo jet experienced turbulence on approach to Toledo and was within sight of the runway when the pilot pulled the plane up and circled the airport, according to reporters on board.

    If "Air Force One" can't land, nobody can. That is the best maintained, best crewed aircraft in the world. Boeing loses money every time they work on it and they put their best people into the crews that service and make upgrades to this airplane. I, for one, hope that no matter who wins the crew nev er takes a chance with their cargo.
