A plane carrying businessman Donald Trump, who is the front-runner in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, has made an emergency landing at the Nashville International Airport, officials say.
Trump was flying from Iowa to Arkansas when the crew of his Boeing B757 aircraft reported engine problems, forcing the aircraft to divert to Nashville International Airport in Tennessee, where it landed safely. Other details were not immediately available, but Trump was able to continue his flight on another aircraft.
Trump had been scheduled to appear at a campaign rally at the Barton Coliseum in Little Rock, Arkansas, at 5 p.m. CT but failed to arrive on time, prompting some of those in attendance to leave after waiting for more than an hour. Trump finally showed up just before 7 p.m. CT after making his way to Little Rock on the alternate aircraft.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said it will investigate Wednesday’s incident.
