Engine problems keep Biden plane in Arizona
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- An Air Force transport that flew Vice President Joe Biden to northern Arizona on Friday remains at the Flagstaff airport because of an engine problem.
A spokesman for the 89th Airlift Wing at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland says the plane, an Air Force version of a Boeing 757 jetliner, ingested some type of debris while landing.
Maj. Joel Harper says the plane landed normally and nobody noticed anything until a routine post-flight inspection.
According to Harper, the plane is still being checked out Tuesday. He says it's expected to leave Flagstaff ``in the coming days.''
Biden returned to Washington on a different Air Force transport. He was in Arizona to speak at McCain Institute forum Friday evening in Sedona.
