After two failed landing attempts, the pilots returned to the original airport. A reporter aboard the flight tweeted, “Two aborted landings at Islamabad due to the storm and we’re back in Lahore.”
- Prince William joked with the media that he was the one in the cockpit flying the plane.
- What was scheduled as a 25-minute flight took more than two hours.
- For two long hours, Prince Harry may have been emotionally torn between possibly losing his brother and the thought of being closer in line to the throne.
