US President Biden traveled from Andrews united base to Wilmington, Delaware, on air force one for the weekend. He jogged up the steps and told the accompanying reporters, "it's a great plane.". On the previous day (February 4), someone broke into the base of air force one.

According to the New York Times, this is Biden's second ride on air force one after 20 years, and the first since taking office.

Biden first boarded air force one when he visited Colombia in 2000 as one of the representatives of then President Clinton. During the Obama administration, for security reasons, the vice president was forbidden to ride air force one with the president, while Biden was not allowed to ride air force one.

On the 4th local time, a man boarded the C-40 transport plane, which belongs to the fleet carrying senior government officials, after the base of air force one was intruded. It is informed that the intruder has been arrested. The military said the plane he boarded did not belong to the presidential fleet.
