Air Force One touched down at Naval Station Rota at 5:33 pm local time after the relatively short trip from Madrid to the southern Atlantic coast of Spain.

Ten minutes later POTUS deplaned and greeted the following lined up to welcome him:

*   Vice Admiral James G Foggo III; Commander, 6th Fleet, Deputy Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Europe
*   Captain Mike MacNicholl, Base Commander Naval Air Station Rota
*   Captain Doug ten Hoopen, Defense Attache to Spain
 *   Pedro Morones, Spanish Minister of Defense
 *   Admiral General Jaime Munoz-Delgado, Spanish Chief of Naval Operation
 *   Vice Admiral Santiago Ramon Gonzalez Gomez, Spanish Naval Base Rota Commander
 *   Ruiz Arana, Mayor of Rota

Ambassador James Costos, U.S. Ambassador to Spain and his partner Michael Smith, who flew here with POTUS from Madrid, followed him in the receiving line.

Motorcade is rolling at 5:49 pm for the short trip to the USS Ross.
