President George W. Bush of the United States will arrive in Singapore on 16 November.

On that day he will visit the Asian Civilizations Museum. Then he will attend a U.S. Embassy event to thank the American and foreign staff working in the Embassy on behalf of the United States and Singapore. He will also see the acting President of Singapore and then meet with the Prime Minister of Singapore.

Following that meeting, the President will deliver remarks at the National University of Singapore. In his remarks, the President will highlight the importance of Asia in the world and will discuss the ways in which the United States and Asian nations are partnering together to face the challenges of poverty, disease, terrorism, and energy security.

He will then participate in a social dinner hosted by the Prime Minister of Singapore.

He leaves for HAN on 17 November.

After Vietnam, he will visit Indonesia. Air Force One is expected to arrive at Jakarta's Halim Airport on November 20, where it will stay for the duration of the President's visit to the country, which is expected to be around 10 hours long.

How come they are using Changi and not Paya Lebar which is what the previous AF1 visits usually use?

Yup this is his second visit. I guess maybe he will get to use the new VIP facility in Changi, looks really luxurious.

Ugh because of him some of the expressways and roads will be closed, and hence our 'A' Levels will be affected.

Happy?
Well, wasting money on a new helipad, getting parts of our cellphone networks shutdown for 6hrs, certain highways shut down for AF1's approach and departures? No access to Halim Airport during his visit, no-fly zone south of Halim to Bogor training area?
Well, not everyone is...

HB-IWC, U got the NOTAMs yet? The Halim guys are already complaining.
