The Brazilian Air Force Airbus A319 jet carrying President Lula (PT) this Sunday (4) had to abort takeoff at Congonhas airport, in the capital of São Paulo.
The aircraft was taking off at 4:44 pm, but a problem occurred and the procedure was interrupted shortly after the start of the flight. The A319 turned around on the runway and returned to the military yard, being released for flight around 20 minutes later, without any other problems.
The plane with registration FAB2101 is an ACJ319, the main aircraft used for presidential transport — in this case, it uses the call code “Air Force One”.
Over the weekend, Lula completed a schedule in São Paulo, including the launch of work on the Port of Santos tunnel and a visit to the Volkswagen factory.
