False start. While the Vice President of the United States was on Sunday in Guatemala on her first international trip, her plane had to turn around. A technical problem was detected just after takeoff.
“I’m fine, I’m fine,” reassured Kamala Harris, raising her two thumbs in the air, smiling after landing, adding, however, “We all said a little prayer but we’re fine.” “
“No major safety concerns”
After 1 hour 30 minutes of waiting, the vice-president finally took off on board a new aircraft. “This is a technical problem. There is no major concern about the safety ”of the former Californian senator, had explained his spokesperson Symone Sanders.
A reporter on the plane, Air Force Two, described an “unusual noise from the landing gear during take-off.” “But the landing (…) was completely normal,” she said.
