TRUMP TO HANOI VIA JBER
North Korea leader Kim Jong Un is on a train heading to Vietnam for his second summit with President Donald Trump, which is scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday.
Alaskans can deduce that Trump will be on Air Force One heading to Vietnam. Where does Air Force One stop? At JBER, where it refuels and gets a 100-point check.
A no-fly notice has been sent to area pilots for 11:45 am until 2:15 pm Alaska time on Thursday for JBER, but also affecting the following air fields:
- PANC Ted Stevens Anchorage Intl
- PALH Lake Hood
- 3C3 Campbell Lake SPB
- PAMR Merrill Field
- 2OK Alaska Rgnl Hospital
- Z40 Goose Bay
- D72 D&C Fire Lake Flying Club
- 5HO Hope
- 6A7 Brocker Lake
- PABV Birchwood
- PAGQ Big Lake
- L95 Jones Landing
- D71 Beaver Lake
- D75 Blodgett Lake
- PAWS Wasilla
The presidential stopovers at Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson normally last a couple of hours, which is just enough time to greet troops and meet with Gov. Michael Dunleavy.
No word on if that meeting is planned.
