Honduran President Makes Unanticipated Landing
What: West Wind
Where: Palmerola US military base
When: September 06 2010
Who: Honduran President Porfirio Lobo
Why: The plane called “West Wind” made an unplanned landing at the US military base in Palmerola (Soto Cano air base in Comayagua) when it developed technical problems at 8000 feet. An indicator light that flashed on board the West Wind jet that instigated the decision to land.
Lobo was flying to New Orleans to sign scholarship agreements to support the 50 best students from low-income families who graduate from high school will be sent on scholarship to good U.S. universities.
The plane is being checked out and the President may continue on a different plane.
