Private 757 reports engine trouble before landing safely in Nashville en route to Little Rock, Arkansas. Donald Trump’s plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Nashville, Tennessee, on Wednesday because of engine trouble.
The Boeing 757 was on its way from Mr Trump’s home base of New York to Little Rock, Arkansas, where the property mogul and Republican presidential candidate was due to address a rally.
The private jet landed safely at 4:40 pm after reporting engine problems, according to the Federal Aviation Authority, which said it would investigate the incident. Mr Trump travelled the rest of the way in a charter aircraft, a campaign spokeswoman said.
Mr Trump eventually arrived an hour and a half late in Little Rock where was addressed more than 11,500 people.
He said it was “rough” getting there but insisted there was “no way” he would return to New York instead of continuing on to Little Rock. “I love Arkansas,” he said.
