  • Description

    King Houssein of Jordan, piloting his own "Elizabethan" aircraft, flew into Nairobi, Kenya, May 10 for a scheduled two-day informal visit. Unfortunately he was delayed by storms enroute from Leopoldville, Belgian Congo, and arrived very late at night. His visit was therefore curtailed, and a tour of African districts had to be cancelled.

    The following day, King Hussein visited Nairobi's new city hall and was shown around the modern building by the Mayor, Mrs. Needham-Clark.

    On the morning of May 12, dressed in the uniform of Marshal of the Royal Jordanian Air Force, the young monarch drove out to Nairobi Airport, inspected a guard of honour, shook hands with Kenya Governor, Sir Patrick Renison, and flew off to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on the next leg of his extensive tour.
