Arrival Of President Obama & Family



President Obama and his family arrived in Hawaii for a 10 day Christmas vacation. This is President Obama's first visit as President of the United States and on Air Force One. When they visited last December, the First Family arrived on a chartered United 767-300.

Above are pictures of Air Force One landing and taxiing back to HIK.

I know we can't track them (I wish we could), but do you think they came n/s from Andrews?

Yes, it was non-stop. There was no news about a stopover and the aircraft has more than enough range to make it non-stop.

Also incase you didn't know already... the E4B is also in Hilo shadowing the Obama trip. There is a lot more security this time around on all fronts!

ha763 - When the Obamas visited last year, they did not use the NA B757, they arrived via a chartered UA B767 and I believe it was a direct flight from ORD.

That's right. I was thinking of when Obama came in August.

Anyone get any pics of the E-4B?

I got a photo of the E-4B from my seat in a HA 717, but I'm going to wait until the President leaves the state before posting it online.

Here's the E-4B at ITO:
