On May 3, 2021, President Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden arrived at Hampton Roads Executive Airport. The President spoke at Tidewater Community College in Portsmouth. The President and First Lady were in coastal Virginia to promote his plans to increase spending on education and children, part of his $1.8 trillion Families Proposal announced the prior week.
Hampton Roads Executive Airport was selected to host the President's arrival and motorcade based on its central location and ease of access to all Hampton Roads cities, as well as excellent airport security and extensive infrastructure. Hosting the Presidential aircraft fleet, including 3 MV22 Tilt Rotors and 2 VH60 VIP Black Hawk helicopters ("Marine One") was an honor for both staff and tenants.
The Geico Skytypers Air Show Team flies six WWII era aircraft, the North American SNJ and the T-6 Texan variant. Both were used as advanced training aircraft to prepare pilots of "The Greatest Generation" for WWII. The team performs a low-level, precision demonstration that features maneuvers and tactics flown by the United States military.
In addition to air show performances, the team "skytypes" giant messages in the sky. Five aircraft fly in a line abreast formation and type dot-matrix style 1,000-foot tall messages that can be seen for 15 miles in any direction.
Pilots track their lives by the number of hours in the air, as if any other kind of time isn't worth noting.
