Plane carrying Bill Clinton makes emergency landing in Tanzania: report


A plane carrying former President Bill Clinton was forced to make an emergency landing in rural Tanzania Wednesday, according to reports.

The pilot brought the plane down near a fueling station in Dodoma, after one of the Canadian turboprop Dash 7’s four engines stopped working, CBS News reported.

Everyone on board the aircraft was safe, CBS News reported, and mechanics at the fueling station began fixing the engine.

The plane had been traveling from the city of Iranga, in the center of Tanzania, to Lake Manyara, in the northern part of the country.

Clinton is traveling in eastern Africa to visit projects that have been funded by the Clinton Family foundation.
