Vice President Mike Pence’s airplane struck a bird upon take-off from a New Hampshire airport, causing the pilot to return to the airport out of caution, The White House said on Tuesday.

Pence was returning to Washington from a campaign event Tuesday at an airport hangar in nearby Gilford. When Air Force Two took off from Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, it struck a bird.

A senior administration official said the vice president and his entourage were in no danger.

The official wasn’t authorized to address the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.
