US Vice President Kamala Harris's plane was forced to land soon after take-off on Sunday due to a technical problem on her way to Guatemala for her first international trip, APA reports quoting NDTV.
"I'm good. I'm good," Harris told reporters, giving a thumbs-up after exiting the plane when it returned to Joint Base Andrews on the outskirts of Washington. "We all said a little prayer, but we're good."
Harris's spokeswoman Symone Sanders said that the vice president would switch planes and no major delays in her itinerary were expected.
"It is a technical issue. There are no major safety concerns," Sanders said.
A journalist onboard reported "an unusual noise" from the landing gear when the plane -- known as Air Force Two -- took off, but said that the landing was "completely normal."
Harris will visit Guatemala and Mexico this week, bringing a message of hope to a region hammered by Covid-19 and which is the source of most of the undocumented migrants seeking entry to the United States.
