US cargo aircraft arrives in Bali ahead of Obama’s visit
June 3rd, 2010

A US Air Force cargo plane carrying logistical needs for the visit of President Barack Obama landed at the Ngurah Rai air base in the Bali capital of Denpasar on Wednesday.

The Boeing C-17 Globemaster crews were seen unloading forklifts and other heavy equipment from the aircraft as soon as it touched down at around 5 p.m. local time.

Security at the air base was tightened as the plane arrived, with journalists given no access to the US Air Force officers.

Air base commander Lt. Col. Aldrin P. Mongan refused to comment when contacted by the press, saying he would give an official statement later.

Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika has confirmed Obama’s trip to the island in about two weeks. Obama is slated to visit Besakih temple, Uluwatu temple and Udayana University campus in Jimbaran.
