President Joe Biden stumbled as he walked up the stairs of Air Force One on Wednesday as he left Poland, marking at least the second time in his term that he has fallen while boarding the presidential aircraft.

Video shows Biden, 80, fall and catch himself with his hands about halfway up the staircase to the plane at Warsaw Chopin Airport. He continued on up the steps and gave a quick wave before entering the aircraft.

In March 2021, Biden stumbled several times as he boarded a flight from Maryland to Atlanta. Then-White House press secretary Jen Psaki blamed those tumbles on "tricky" stairs.
