A Canadian turboprop Dash 7 jet, carrying former President Bill Clinton, had to make an unscheduled landing in Dodoma, Tanzania on April 29.

The plane was en-route from Iranga to Lake Manyara when one of its four engines malfunctioned. The pilot then had to land near Dodoma fueling station where the engine was repaired.

The aircraft took off again shortly afterwards and safely landed at its scheduled destination.

Clinton was visiting the country to tour projects funded by his foundation.
