A plane low on fuel traveling from Chicago to Indianapolis Friday was forced to land in Dayton since Vice President Mike Pence’s plane was on the runway there.
According to RTV6 in Indianapolis, the flight was in Indianapolis air space and was denied permission to land at Indianapolis International Airport.
Air traffic controllers said United Express flight 3633 could not land because Air Force Two was on the runway.
After 20 minutes of asking to land, the flight’s fuel level went too low and the pilots traveled more than 120 miles to Dayton International Airport to refuel and then fly back to Indianapolis.
Pence was in Indianapolis for a luncheon event.
