NELSON – A plane with Prince Willem-Alexander and Maxima on board has made a precautionary landing at the airport in Nelson New Zealand on Wednesday.

The Dutch couple had wound up a visit to Nelson and was on their way to Wellington.

Three minutes after the aircraft, a specially engaged Jetstream 32, was airborne, the pilot decided to return.

On board a strange smell was detected. According to unconfirmed reports the air conditioning was not entirely in order.

Willem-Alexander and Maxima decided eventually to take a commercial flight to Wellington, where a meeting awaited with the Dutch community.
