The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were flying back to Australia from Tonga aboard a Qantas Airlines flight, with many royal reporters on board.
As the plane began to make its decent into the Sydney Airport, the pilots had to change course at the last minute and circle back around the famed Sydney Harbour. Multiple reporters noted that the pilot came on over the intercom to inform the plane’s passengers that they had to abort their original landing due to another plane that hadn’t cleared the runway.
The pilot explained that the incident is referred to as a “missed approach.” He went on to add, “You’ll get another great view of the harbour.”
