Former President Donald Trump was inbound to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida Saturday night earlier than an engine failure compelled the aircraft to make an emergency touchdown.
Per a report from The Washington Post, the aircraft was flying over the Gulf of Mexico when the failure occurred. The pilot turned again in direction of New Orleans and landed shortly earlier than 11 p.m. at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. Trump was set to return from his look at a personal occasion on the Four Seasons Hotel in New Orleans.
The aircraft, which Trump loaned for the evening from an unidentified donor, had gone roughly 75 miles after taking off from New Orleans Lakefront Airport. In addition to Trump, a number of Secret Service brokers, assist workers and advisers had been aboard the Dassault Falcon 900.
According to Politico, audio of the communications between the pilot and the air visitors management tower described the touchdown as “emergency in nature.”
After making the unscheduled touchdown, Trump’s advisers secured one other donor’s aircraft and he arrived in Palm Beach at round 3 a.m. Sunday morning.
