Air Force One aborts landing in Ohio

Air Force One, carrying President Barack Obama to a day of campaigning, aborted its landing due to bad weather in Ohio on Wednesday.

The blue-and-white presidential 747-200 aircraft pulled up as it made its final approach amid heavy turbulence in Toledo, before making a successful second attempt to land.

"The aircraft commander made the decision to circle the airfield and landed uneventfully a few moments later when weather had lifted," said Major Shelley Lai, a US Air Force spokeswoman.

"There was no delay to the President's schedule."

Obama later left Toledo for Akron, without incident for a second rally in the midwestern swing state, where his Republican rival Mitt Romney was also campaigning Wednesday.
