Harry, Meghan flight’s landing aborted due to plane on runway in Sydney

Harry, Meghan flight’s landing aborted due to plane on runway in Sydney

Harry and Mehan’s flight from Tonga to Australia has landing aborted due to the plane on Sydney’s airport runaway, SkyNews reported on Friday.

The Qantas aircraft’s pilot was forced to pull up just a moments before the plane with Harry and Meghan on the board was meant to be coming into land. The young couple then joked that we would again have some great views of Sydney as we eventually landed on the second attempt.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan were flying from Tonga as part of their first joint overseas tour. Australia has impressed the royal couple very much, including their aircraft’s landing on Sydney. On Friday, an announcement from the flight deck said: “There was an aircraft on the runway a little slow to roll… so the decision was taken to abort the landing.”

Talking about the double landing, Meghan and Harry insisted that it was not scary, it was fine.

“No-one was concerned, the move was jovial on board. We’d all had a lovely flight. At no point was there any question of our safety,” Meghan added.

The couple arrived in Tonga from Fiji on Thursday and joined Princess Angelika and Prince Ata, King Tupou VI’s son and daughter, at the Fa’onelua Centre. During Tonga official visit, Duke and Duchess of Sussex have visited the wooden, whitewashed Royal Palace for an audience with King Tupou VI and his wife, Queen Nanasipau’u.

Harry and Meghan also met local Tongan traders and craftsmen as the Masani group of singers and dancers performed island music and songs.
