Heavy storms force Prince William and Kate Middleton's jet to abandon landing at Islamabad
LAHORE – The RAF Voyager plane carrying UK royals, who are on a four-day official visit to Pakistan, tried to land twice, at Rawalpindi air base and Islamabad international, before it decided to return to Lahore on Thursday evening.
William, who has previously worked as a search and rescue helicopter pilot, told reporters after they landed that he and Kate were fine, joking that the problems had been caused because he was flying the plane.
Reports in local media say the VVIP lounge at Allama Iqbal International Airport has been opened for the British royalty. They will be taken to a local hotel if the bad weather persists over Pakistani skies.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been flying around Pakistan each day on the British Government's official Voyager aircraft, courtesy of the Royal Air Force.
