First VC-25 to Land: “SAM45”
At 10:11AM, before Air Force One itself landed, the back up VC-25, registered 82-8000, landed on Yokota’s runway 36 as “SAM45.”
It went all the way to the end of the runway before turning around and backtracking to its parking spot on the southern side of the air base.
Second VC-25 to Land: “Air Force One”
Less than half-an-hour later, at 10:38AM, the second VC-25 landed on runway 36. This one, registered 92-900, carried President Trump onboard – and as such flew with the world’s most well known callsign, “Air Force One.”
Unlike “SAM45,” the aircraft turned about two-thirds down the runway before taxiing to the VIP apron.
Off for a Round of Golf Onboard “Marine One”
After his arrival, the President gave a speech to US troops based at the air base, and then headed for a round of golf with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
To get to the golf course located about 25 km away from Yokota, he used VH-3 Sea King – flying under the “Marine One” callsign.
The President is expected to spend tomorrow in Japan before departing to Korea on Tuesday morning.
