If there is need for the Presidential Limousine and Secret Service vehicles then these could be delivered direct to Newquay by USAF (United States Air Force) Boeing C-17 Globemaster IIIs.

May not be required - the Mayor of Camborne has offered the use of his Civic vehicle - the entourage should just about fit into a 1976 Hillman Hunter but the Driver has been told to make two trips if necessary.

Additional security is to be provided via the use of a couple of muck spreaders which will be kept fully loaded at all times and will act as an escort.

In the spirit of this thread; does Airforce 1 carry a coffin? Has the local undertaker been put on standby? Given measurements?

Will Biden have had his second covid jab? Will Macron have is Astra Zenica Jab while here. His wife has probably had hers already being in a vulnerable group.

Civil servants do have to plan for any contingency.

The Presidential body bag in Airforce 1 has probably been change this month, for a smaller size.  Grin

But seriously - deceased business class passengers who weren't in that state when boarding a 747 are sometimes allowed to use one of the crew bunks. In standard class - well, let's not go into that just now. Let's just say that there may be a reason why the guy in the next seat isn't so chatty.

Looking back up thread and at all the crowds it will bring needing the Carbis Bay Hotel, the Treganna Castle and even the Bean Inn and the Cornish Arms ... I was thinking about the visitor numbers ...

As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man and seven heads of state,
Each head of state had seven staff,
Each staff had seven family members,
Each family member had seven suitcases:
Suitcases, family members, staffers and heads of state,
How many are there going to St. Ives?
