(ANSA) – LONDON, JUN 01 – Moments of anxiety yesterday afternoon for the 96-year-old Queen Elizabeth, aboard the private jet that brought her back to London from Scotland – after a few days spent in Balmoral Castle – in view of the key events of the public celebrations of the Platinum Jubilee of its 70 years of record reign destined to come alive tomorrow. At least to give credit to the Sun, which on the front page today tells of a first landing attempt aborted for the real plane, due to a storm that struck in those hours in the capital area with lightning and gusts of wind.

According to the reconstruction of the Rupert Murdoch tabloid, the pilot of the 13-seater aircraft attempted a first approach towards the runway of the Raf base in Northolt, near London, but was then forced to return to altitude and continue to fly over the area for a few minutes waiting for better conditions, before a second landing maneuver was successful.

A source from Buckingham Palace has for its part minimized the incident, specifying that it was an ordinary precautionary procedure, common to many flights in similar weather conditions, and that in any case the sovereign did not run any danger.

Subsequent images, taken during the car journey from the base to Windsor Castle, showed Elizabeth II with a smiling and apparently calm expression, in her usual greeting from the window. (HANDLE).
