The U.S.'s Second Lady Dr. Jill Biden landed at the Panama Pacifico International Airport -formerly the Howard Air Force Base-, west of Panama City at 6:06 p.m.
Dr. Biden was greeted on the runway by Roberto F. Z??iga Brid, Chief of State Protocol.
The Republican Band was playing as she descended from the airplane and walked along the red carpet. Cadets from the S.P.I. (Institutional Protection Services) were lined up on both sides of the carpet and at the end awaited a folkloric group, which allowed her to appreciate the Panamanian national dress, the pollera and montuna.
Minutes later, Dr. Biden was chauffered towards the Balboa Port overlooking the Panama Canal, where she is scheduled to deliver remarks at the Independence Day Celebration hosted by the U.S. Embassy.
