Obama plane aborts landing, touches down safely: FAA

"The pilot attempted to land at 9:50 am (1350 GMT) and because of poor visibility, he decided to do a go-around and he landed at 10:05," at Bradley International Airport in the state of Connecticut, Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Tammy Jones told AFP.
"There was no danger. It was a routine procedure" conducted when a pilot determines there is insufficient visibility to land safely, she said.

White House spokesman Nick Shapiro also confirmed that Air Force One "did a go-round" at Bradley due to bad weather, and "circled around and landed safely a few minutes later."
