Hummmm......An attempted hit, shot across the bow or legitimate plane trouble?

 

All flights to and from airport are grounded as aircraft carrying new foreign secretary experiences technical fault

A plane carrying the new foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, had to make an emergency landing at Luton airport on Sunday, officials have said.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office confirmed that the aircraft, believed to be an RAF passenger jet, a BAE 146, had experienced a technical fault – thought to be an issue with the plane’s hydraulics.

Flights to and from the airport were grounded while emergency services dealt with the situation.

Johnson’s appointment by Theresa May this week was controversial, with some saying he has a poor record on international relations.

He was booed when giving a speech at the French embassy in London soon after being given the job and the country’s foreign minister accused him of lying during the Brexit campaign.

He also suggested in a Telegraph column that the US president Barack Obama’s “part-Kenyan” heritage had driven him towards anti-British sentiment and referred to black people as “piccaninnies” with “watermelon smiles”.
