Trump’s plane makes emergency landing

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Donald Trump’s plane was diverted to Nashville International Airport Wednesday after reporting engine problems, officials said.

The pilot declared an emergency but didn’t ask for assistance, a source told CBS News.

The Trump Boeing B757 landed at about 4 p.m., reports CBS Nashville affiliate WTVF-TV.

The airport tweeted a greeting:

The Federal Aviation Administration says it will investigate.

Trump, a Republican presidential contender, was on his way to Little Rock, Arkansas for a rally when the starboard engine experienced a mechanical issue 50 miles outside Nashville, WTVF says.

A source told the station one of the engines was sticking in neutral.

Trump was on the plane, and boarded another one shortly after landing, WTVF says.

Trump’s plane remained at the airport to be checked out, the station adds.

The plane is a Boeing 757-200 built in 1991 with Rolls-Royce RB.211 Series engines.

    Too few details on Trump’s jet

    I have tried looking into Trump’s jet, but as it turns out there are no details whatsoever, only that it reported engine trouble, landed safely, and Trump continued on to Arkansas on a chartered plane.
    I will say this though: No doubt the shadow government is very upset with Trump for stating the elections are rigged, and doubly upset with Trump for being the catalyst for ID checks in the New Hampshire primaries. Now they can call his jet a hunk o junk and crash it at will. Par for the course, I am confident they will make every effort to kill him if they think he can circumvent their efforts to stop him, and if they believe he has a real shot at becoming President.

    Becoming President is Hillary’s assigned job, after all, if it was not, she’d already be washing dishes in a Federal prison.

    Donald, watch your back.
