Executive One Foxtrot, the official aircraft of the United States, departed Joint Base Andrews (JBA) at 4:35 pm Eastern Time on an international trip. The plane made a scheduled refuel stop at Amilcar Cabral International Airport (GVAC) located on Sal Island, Cabo Verde at 2:52 am local time.
Cabo Verde is +4 eastern time.
Despite some turbulence during the flight, there were no notable incidents. Some members of the executive staff, the Secret Service, and a press pool disembarked to take in the warm Cabo Verde night, though the airport was quiet due to the early hour. While the First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS) was not sighted, Naomi Biden was observed disembarking.
At 3:54 am, after completing refueling, Executive One Foxtrot was ready for takeoff as it prepared to fly to its next destination, Hosea Kutako International Airport (YWH) in Windhoek, Namibia. The flight is expected to take approximately seven and a half hours. However, it is worth noting that cell service is likely to be poor or even nonexistent upon arrival in Namibia.
Upon arrival, FLOTUS will dive straight into a busy schedule, beginning with a warm reception from First Lady of the Republic of Namibia, Monica Geingos, at the airport. The two will then visit Heroes’ Acre, which is an official war memorial of the Republic of Namibia. Subsequently, Jill Biden will have a meeting with the President of the Republic of Namibia, Hage Geingob, and First Lady Geingos at the State House.
