Problem aboard First Lady's plane, returning to @Andrews_JBA. Press pool aboard reports "thin haze of smoke" was visible and the smell of something burning. Passengers given wet towels to breathe through. Told a "mechanical issue" was detected.

For the love of God, why is she coming here to Philly?
This worries me. I hope there are strict security measures regarding those in charge of maintaining. I’ve never heard of something like this happening on a presidential plane. I could be wrong though.
Something about her Be Best campaign.
Are you worried about the traffic? Why do you have a problem with her coming there? I can certainly understand the traffic tie-ups that occur with a visit like that. It must be very irritating. On the other hand she gets to meet and mingle with people. And I’m sure many people enjoy the chance to meet her.
Deep State bastards....
Good grief. I was so glad she returned from Africa safely, and hopefully will not suffer any disease from that. Now a plane malfunctioned. Stay home more great First Lady! We need you to be safe.
Don’t be shocked if this continues....
“For the love of God, why is she coming here to Philly?”
I live just outside Philly, and Philly is a dump. It’s a completely Democrat controlled “shithole”. Philly, Camden, Chester, Wilmington, and Baltimore make the mid Atlantic I-95 corridor shithole collector set.
Locals don’t go to Pat’s or Geno’s.
In going betweewn these airports, the flight barely gets off the ground from one before it has to land at the other.
Melania is a local to Philadelphia?
It’s certainly a Dem stronghold and prime for cheating. Gives the Dems a BIG edge in Pa.
Her “rep” in Philly would hopefully take her elsewhere.
Then again, Pat’s v Geno’s is what everyone else knows...
I’m hoping for Philly and Camden to slide into the Delaware.
Probably a bad filter or heat exchanger on the bleed air system.
It’s been 30 years since I lived in NE Philly. Made the occasional trip into Center City..ate at Pat’s maybe twice. But...in day-to-day life...I’d hit the closest neighborhood steak place to feed my habit. Loved’em.
