Zoom always carries the risk that someone shares a screen with naughty images....... and besides you only get the first 45 minutes free!!!

The Devon Live website carries images & videos of POTUS (President Of The United States) aircraft - V22 Osprey VSTOL & C130 Hercules machines - arriving in the South West.

Also 3 Chinook helicopters 'disturbing the peace' over the Dart Estuary.

It all seems a bit OTT (Open Train Times website) for a chinwag lasting 2 1/2 days.

The Cornish must be terrified by the sight of these strange creatures in the sky.....no doubt they'll be crossing themselves and predicting a failed harvest!

presumably a naval vessel as opposed to a diesel locomotive.

Here in deepest Somersetshire, flying machines are seen regularly, they make a lot of noise. I think they might be related to the "fire breathing smoke snorting iron monsters" that have almost displaced horses.
No good will come of this.

A proper intercity train has a minimum of 8 coaches, gangwayed throughout, with first at one end, and a full sized buffet car between first and standard.
It has space for cycles, surfboards,luggage etc.
A 5 car DMU (Diesel Multiple Unit) is not a proper inter-city train. The 5+5 and 9 car DMUs are almost as bad.

So, it appears Pres. Biden has landed at RAF (Royal Air Force) Mildenhall...
Perhaps so they can service Air Force 1 in a secure enviroment  (my guess)

Transfer by Helicopter?

I believe the Falmouth Service will run with 3 carriages on the days when Falmouth Town is closed.
#Falmouth Town is only long enough for 2 carriages. Sad

I'm getting lost ... does that mean it's either 158 or 166s, or is there still the odd 1509xx still around?

Don’t think 166 are cleared, they’ve not made it to Cornwall yet. There isn’t any 1509** that I’m aware of but several 3 car 158 about.

There are buses and coaches on standby at various locations in Cornwall for the rail including Truro and Falmouth docks
 

It would have to be a 158/9 (3 Car) if it is to be 3 carriages.    166s are not cleared and even if they were nobody in that neck of the woods could drive them and no 3 Car 150s any mor

Currently there is a C32 flying from RAF Mildenhall to the southwest. Not sure if President Biden is on it though as it has an SAM callsign not AF1. An E4B has also flown over too if anyone is interested.

Edit: AF1 just coming down from flying over Wales.

Currently circling which is odd. The VC25 has turned off towards the Isle of Wight.SAM46 landed.and AF1 doing a flyby of Torquay. Maybe he's a Fawlty Towers fan.

The weather has wrecked the start of this visit. From local news sources it appears that the President may have to be driven to the Location rather than flying by helicopters tonight. Fog is dreadful in places tonight in the county.

Not sure if I quoted this up-thread ... but I am reminded as this is the Gee SEVEN of
Quote
As I was going to St Ives,
Upon the road I met seven wives;
Every wife had seven sacks,
Every sack had seven cats,
Every cat had seven kits:
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were going to St Ives?

Let's hope for good worldwide outcomes for health, peace, trade and economies and wish them all well in St Ives.  The Seven world leaders are ambassadors from across the world - the importance is for the pyramid of seven under each of them, then the seven under each of them, and the seven under that group, and so on ...
