Trouble with plane causes Bradley to cancel Baltimore appearances

February 21, 2000

Democratic presidential candidate Bill Bradley canceled appearances at Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church and Baltimore-Washington International Airport yesterday after mechanical trouble forced his plane to land in St. Louis Saturday night.

Bradley, the former New Jersey senator, had flown from Seattle to St. Louis on Saturday. A few minutes after that plane took off for Baltimore, a warning light appeared on the instrument panel, and the pilots returned to St. Louis. Bradley took a different plane to Newark, N.J., yesterday. His visit to Maryland was planned to drum up support in advance of the state's primary March 7.

"No one feels worse about this than Senator Bradley," campaign spokesman Joshua Galper said. "We will try to reschedule in Baltimore, but we just don't know when that would be at this point."
