OREANDA-NEWSThe plane, on board which was former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, made an emergency landing at New York Airport. This was reported by CNN, citing sources in law enforcement.

The board of American Airlines was flying to Washington, but was forced to return to the airport of departure due to a technical malfunction. Pilots of the liner told the authorities that the plane began to shake, and the airport ground personnel saw smoke and found a metal chip several tens of meters from the airport. No casualties reported.

Passengers transferred to the reserve board and later successfully flew out of Washington, CNN said. Clinton spokesman declined to comment on the channel. In mid-November, a similar incident occurred with Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov - his Falcon plane made an emergency landing at Sofia Airport after a failure of the aircraft’s navigation system. The politician was not hurt.

Hillary Clinton is a former US Senator and Secretary of State. In the 2016 presidential election, she was a Democratic candidate and lost to Donald Trump.
