The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation leaders' summit will be held this week in Honolulu, and I'm wondering what sort of planes will be flown in for the occasion. I figure the USAF Air Force One (VC-25) and the JASDF Air Force One will be in town, plus a whole bunch of other VIP aircraft that aren't often in the US, never mind HNL.

When APEX was in SYD a few years ago, the highlight was the Chile Air Force 707, not sure if it is even still operating.
Don't forget the Russians come to, so you should get an IL96 as well as a couple of 62's. Probably the Malaysian BBJ, whatever Thailand has that isn't swimming in BKK and don't forget the Sultan of Brunei.
It was a good period for spotting in SYD I can assure you.
