Thanks for the info.... but is there any arrival time details, regardless of whether it's the President, the Secretary of State, or the Vice President?

Will those aircraft be inside a hangar, or out in the open on the tarmac while they are here? (Probably a hanger, I'd say.)

Thanks again.

Those details are not public, the last presidential visit was certainly not a hanger arrival https://georgewbush-whitehouse.archi...47-1-513h.html

There is no guarantee that YSSY will even be used, President Obamas visit to Brisbane saw him land at Amberley and commute on Marine One to meetings from there.

Ah yes, some good ole memories back to the 4th Sep 2007; in for APEC meetings, after landing on 16R, Air Force One taxied right past Shep's Mound on taxiway charlie at 10.21pm before heading to the Eastern Park for offloading.

AFOne will be coming in from PNG.

Seen comments where Marine One will also be used.

Day or time of arrival? It looks like it's arriving at YSSY, not a surrounding airport.

The G7 is in Japan 19-21 May - so it would be likely AF1 will come from Japan to PNG to Sydney and Canberra.

Airspace NOTAMs are out for 22-25 May - so I would say arrival is 22nd.

As expected the President has cancelled his trip.

The Quad has been cancelled in full however the Indian PM Narendra Modi will still be visiting Sydney for a reception at Olympic Park on the 23rd May.
