E-4Bs At ITO

An E-4B was on Hilo's ramp over the holiday period, and they switched it out one day for another E-4B, here are a couple of pics of the switch and both of them clogging up the ITO ramp.

One of the TV news channels showed an E-4B on the ITO ramp after someone sent a photo wondering why "Air Force 1" was at ITO, and they had to clarify that it was not "Air Force 1", but part of the president's aerial entourage.

Where the E-4B's in Hawaii to support the Presidential trip or were they here on another mission? It's not entirely clear. And why two? did they first one have a mechanical?

They were here in a support role, the 2nd E4-B came to replace the first as a scheduled change, I'm assuming so that crew did not have to be on assignment for both christmas and new years.

There was a lot going on this time around with Obama and with the holidays and all that was the reason we saw the E4Bs@ITO... there are reasons which one should not divulge as to 'why' this is all happening. If you have the 'need to know' it would certainly not be posted on a public forum. There are things going on which you cannot imagine-hence the much larger no-fly zone on Oahu this time around. Just think national security!

The E4 is there as part of Hillary Clintons visit, it should head off to New Zealand and Australia next week.

Good luck trying to figure out the mission of an E-4B.
