Trump’s private jet makes emergency landing in Nashville

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Presidential candidate Donald Trump was in Nashville for a short while Wednesday, but he wasn’t doing any campaigning.

His plane was diverted to the Nashville International Airport at 4:40 p.m. due to engine trouble.

The airport tweeted a photo of the plane saying, “Just making a quick pit stop. Welcome to BNA, @realDonaldTrump!”

The Federal Aviation Administration released the following statement: “A Boeing B757, diverted from its planned route and landed safely at the Nashville International Airport tonight at 4:40 pm. after reporting engine problems. The FAA will investigate.”

News 2 learned his visit was short-lived as he and his campaign were put on a different plane so they could continue on their way. His plane sat empty in a hangar at the time of this report.

ABC News reports Trump was in Little Rock, Arkansas, Wednesday night for a rally that started late at 7:45 p.m., more than an hour and a half off schedule.
