Plane Lands in Aberdeen as Royal Family Members Travel to Balmoral

Members of the British royal family arrived in Aberdeen, Scotland, on Thursday, September 8, to travel to Balmoral amid concern over Queen Elizabeth II’s health, the BBC reported.

Livestreamed news footage shows a white plane with G-ZABH written on its side land in Aberdeen International Airport at around 3:50 pm, which corresponds to flight KRF23R. More than 100,000 people tracked the plane online as it traveled from London.

Minutes after the plane landed at Aberdeen, Chris Ship, ITV’s royal editor said, “Prince William, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward, and Sophie Wessex have just landed on an RAF plane at Aberdeen airport.”
