Air Force One's bumpy ride

BOWLING GREEN, OHIO -- Air Force One had a bit of a bumpy ride from Andrews Air Force Base to the Toledo Express airport today. The small group of journalists traveling aboard AF1 with the president reported that it took two attempts to land in Ohio.  According to the print pool report:

Just as the plane was about to land in Toledo, amid turbulence and midway thru gaggle, --runway was visible --AF1 ascended and made another pass. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, after consulting with crew, returned to press cabin and said the issue was weather related.

The Weather Channel is reporting, via the Federal Aviation Administration, that today's turbulence forecast called for low level turbulence in the Toledo area. When the president departs the Toledo airport later this afternoon, the visibility is expected to be about three miles. He’ll land at the Akron-Canton Regional airport a little after 3:00 pm ET today for another campaign event and be greeted with a 90% chance of showers and possible thunderstorms.
