VPOTUS pool report 2 - Alaska arrival
Andrew Beatty • Agence France-Presse
April 15, 2017: 12:27 PM

At 11:59 local time Air Force Two landed at Ted Stevens International Airport, rather than Elmendorf as previously advertised. Apologies for the error.

The Vice President was greeted on the tarmac by governor Bill Walker and his family and Lt. General Ken Wilsbach.

The group chatted at the foot of the stairs for a minute or two. The plane was framed by a distant spine of snow-covered peaks in and whispy white clouds set against a blue sky above.

The group then walked into executive terminal.

Your pool was then taken upstairs briefly where the VP and governor were sat in a conference room that had displays from the Alaska LNG project.

The governor mentioned that he was pleased with the F-35 coming to Alaska. The Vice President complemented him on his team.

We are now holding while the meeting continues and the plane refuels.
