Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tripped and fell Tuesday while boarding her ride back from an official visit to Yemen, a US Air Force C-32.

It appears that the airstairs may not have been perfectly aligned with the bottom of the door of the jet, and Clinton may not have seen that she had to step up as she waved to onlookers.

The C-32 is the military version of Boeing’s 757 airliner.

State Department officials say Clinton was not injured.
