President Obama's motorcade left the home where he's staying at 10:07am. The presidential SUVs were now adorned with American flags on the hood. Motorcade arrived at Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam at 10:31am.

Motorcade arrived at AF1 at 10:34am. POTUS, wearing khakis and shirtsleeves, walked to a group of people standing behind metal barricades he shook hands down the line for several minutes. Then he stopped to talk to a couple people pool couldn't see. He greeted some of the people in uniform in the press pen across from the crowd behind the barricades where he earlier shook hands.

He walked over to AF1 with Admiral Harry B. Harris, commander US Pacific Command (per the WH).

At 10:41am POTUS boarded AF1, waving to the cameras before ducking inside. Wheels up shortly for Hangzhou. It's a direct flight. No gaggle planned.
