A charter flight for the White House press corps, who will follow President Biden on his first overseas trip to the United Kingdom, has been delayed by cicadas, Fox News has confirmed.

The Tuesday evening flight was delayed "several hours," at Dulles International Airport in Northern Virginia, according to Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy.

Associated Press reporter Jonathan Lemire tweeted that the cicadas, which have descended on the city and other parts of the U.S. after spending 17 years underground, had caused a "mechanical issue."

The president will also travel to Belgium and Switzerland during the week-long tour.
