Air Force One aborts initial landing approach
The aircraft pilot "made the decision to circle the airfield and landed uneventfully a few moments later when the weather had lifted," according to a statement from the Air Force. A Federal Aviation Administration official called the blip a "routine missed approach" due to cloudy conditions.
"Just did a pass because weather was right on top of airport," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters in an email. "Just landed. No problem."
There was no delay to the president's schedule, which included remarks at Bowling Green State University.
On Friday, a charter plane carrying GOP nominee Mitt Romney's wife Ann made an emergency landing after the cabin filled with smoke, reportedly due to an electrical fire. No one was hurt.
