Subject: WH Travel Pool 1 — departure from Andrews

Marine 1 set down on a warm and breezy tarmac at Joint Base Andrews at 1608. The helicopter rolled to a stop a couple of hundred feet ahead of the parked Air Force 1 jet, and the president emerged from the forward door a few minutes later.


He walked to the forward boarding stairs of the plane, waving to the press ahead of the port wing but not taking questions. He climbed the stairs, waved in the direction of the terminal and stepped aboard at 1613.

The pool is being rushed aboard and we should be airborne shortly.
We are aboard the smaller of the two planes typically used as Air Force 1, a modified Boeing 757, as the runways at Morristown, N.J., are not long enough to accommodate the large plane.
Flight time to Morristown should be less than an hour.
