U.S. Vice President Michael Penn’s plane collided with a bird in the sky, and the pilot decided to return to the airport of departure. This was reported by CNN.
Pence took part in pre-election events in New Hampshire, from where the plane took off. The collision occurred almost immediately after take-off. The liner is inspected by specialists, but no damage has been reported yet.
It is expected that Pence and his team will return to Washington on a spare liner.
Recall that in 2016, when landing in New York, Pence’s plane moved off the runway. The vice president was not injured then.
