Smoke and burning smell forces Melania Trump’s aircraft to return to Joint Andrews Air Force Base


On 17 October, First Lady Melania Trump was forced to return to Joint Andrews Air Force Base after smoke and a burning smell was detected in her Boeing C-32A. Melania Trump was en route to Philadelphia to visit the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital until the problem developed 10 minutes after take-off.

Members of the press aboard reported that a “thin haze of smoke” was visible and the smell of something burning. Passengers were given wet towels to breathe through. A “mechanical issue” was detected.

The aircraft safely headed back; meanwhile, a replacement aircraft is being prepared to bring Melania Trump to “Philly”.
