He's not going to Valkenburg, he's going to Beek.
The spare might go to Valkenburg, but I'd consider Eindhoven or Gilze Rijen a more likely alternative.
I wish I were flying

19:45 Local time.

the airport is closed-off for spectators. As from 18:00 the motorways A2 and A76 will be closed-down for traffic as well.

Press arrives around 21:00h with a UA 747

The AF1 and Back-up have landed at MST around 19:15 (yes both 747's are here!!).

Maybe a stupid question, but why close 2 motorways? Are they afraid he will land on the road? Again such paranoia security. As if it happens when El Al lands, which has more enemies then the AF1.

MST is directly adjacent to the A2, to prevent Minivans passing by with rocket launchers they close the motorway for a few hours. And all roads Bush will be driving on have to be closed as well, that includes the A76 which isn't far from the airport as well. Same scenario when he departs tomorrow.
