It’s emerging on Monday that Trump’s plane had a near-miss with a small drone on Sunday as it approached Washington DC for landing.
Multiple people on board Air Force One reported seeing a yellow and black device flying nearby, said to be shaped like a cross, which came just off the right side of the aircraft soon before touching down at 5:54pm.
President Trump was returning from his golf club in Bedminster New Jersey when it happened.
Several reporters traveling as part of the press pool were eyewitnesses, with Senior Bloomberg News correspondent Jennifer Jacobs commenting just after landing that “Multiple people on AF1 saw what appeared to be a drone just below the plane as we were descending toward Joint Base Andrews. We came very close to hitting it.”
