Spanish prince cancels trip to Brazil

November 25, 2013

MADRID (AP) — Spain’s royal palace says Crown Prince Felipe has canceled a two-day trip to Brazil after a technical hitch on the plane he was due to fly on.

The palace said the prince was to have flown out to Sao Paulo early Monday but there was a problem with a wing flap of the Spanish Air Force Airbus A-310.

The two-day visit aimed at promoting Brazilian investment in Spain was canceled after mechanics spent several hours trying to fix the problem with no success.
