Obama's plane lands in St. Louis for maintenance

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The airplane carrying Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has made a safe, unscheduled landing in St. Louis Monday after a maintenance issue arose en route from Chicago to Charlotte, N.C.
The pilot has announced from the cockpit that the plane experienced a problem maintaining the proper pitch, or control over keeping the nose at the proper angle, as it was taking off from Chicago. FAA spokeswoman Laura Brown says the plane had a flight control problem.

The pilot has announced, "We have full authority of the aircraft." A mechanic has boarded the plane and was planning to inspect the problem on the ground in St. Louis.

12. I wouldn't put it past the Bushies to have one of their plumbers "Wellstone" him...
I don't put anything beneath the Bush administration. Absolutely nothing.


They were at it early.

Too bad it wasn't an emergency landing in a large body of water so Obama could've been photographed walking on the surface, rescuing a small child.

It's all over the local news. Obama just got off the plane about a half hour ago. Why he stayed on for almost 2 hours is a mystery. They said he deplaned and got into an SUV. I believe the reporters also got out. O is heading to a "local hotel".

Before they start the Wellstoning, perhaps they should consider that the plane had been the one Hillary used in her campaign. :eek: Oh, the possibilities with that one. :D

Oh, noes. The wicked witch is trying to cast her black magic on the Obamastar. Obama needs to employ the services of a good fortune teller. :eek:

Are we just calling him "O" now? He's so awesome, one letter will suffice. Is that it? :D

I think he realized that protestors were waiting for him at his destination and deplaned in St. Louis to give an unannounced speech. JMO

Wouldn't put it past him! :D

On the local news someone commented about a slide or something that had been engaged that had messed with the handling of the plane. Maybe it was fixed---by some mysterious person! Don't think it was a Wellstone deal.

I found this;

Very interesting......the plane in question was the one used by Hitlery. (http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalpunch/2008/07/obamas-plane-sc.html)

....

This was not Obama's regular campaign plane, which is being overhauled. It was a loaner, having previously been used by Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY.

:eek:

The kid needs to watch his back.

You don't mess with the Hildabeast.

They'll probably find him on the floor any day now laid out by a toaster explosion.

:D

You're right, it shouldn't take him this long to clean out his shorts.
