Air Force One was wheels down at 5:00 p.m. at the Ralph Wien Memorial Airport in Kotzebue.

As Obama stepped onto the tarmac, he became the first sitting president to travel north of the Arctic Circle. He did not appear to mark the occasion.

Obama walked quickly to the viewing pen and spent a few minutes shaking hands and greeting excited local residents. He then hopped into his waiting SUV and the motorcade rolled toward Kotzebue School at 5:16 p.m., arriving five minutes later.

Pool is awaiting the president's remarks, which are open press and should be streamed online.
