Melania Trump's plane lands safely after mechanical issue

She was late for the visit Wednesday morning after her first flight was forced to return to a Washington area military base because of smoke in the cabin.

The plane, which departed Joint Base Andrews Air base in Prince George's County, Maryland, was forced to turn around about 10 minutes after takeoff.

The smell was reportedly coming from "a malfunctioning comms unit" on board.

One of the journalist's on the plane said an aide to the First Lady came into their compartment to inform them that there was a "mechanical problem".

It is unknown at this point if Mrs Trump will attempt today to get to Philadelphia.
