FLAGSTAFF, AZ - 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.
Biden was in Sedona Friday to attend a forum hosted by the McCain Institute for International Leadership to discuss how to effectively promote freedom and democracy worldwide.
According to ABC News, the Vice President's Office told them the engines on the aircraft ingested some debris shortly after landing in Flagstaff.
The damage was discovered during a routine post-flight inspection by an Air Force 2 maintenance crew.
No one on board, including the Vice President, noticed anything at the time and the plane landed safely without incident.
The Vice President returned to Washington, DC on an alternate U.S. Air Force aircraft.
