CNN's Kaitlan Collins reports Vice President Pence's plane has returned to the airport in Manchester after a bird strike during takeoff. 

"Reporters traveling with Vice President Pence were just told Air Force Two turned around after taking off from New Hampshire because of an issue with the plane's engine. Pence and staff are now taking a cargo plane back to Washington," Collins tweeted. 

She said, "WH official tells me Air Force Two hit a bird and they returned out of an abundance of caution."
