President Joe Biden touched down at Nantucket Memorial Airport aboard Air Force One at 8:05 p.m. Tuesday evening after an hour-long flight from Joint Base Andrews in Maryland.
Members of the Biden family, including First Lady Jill Biden and Hunter Biden, got off the government aircraft with the President and were whisked away in a massive motorcade down Old South Road and out to the compound of billionaire David Rubenstein on Nantucket Harbor. The family will be staying at the waterfront estate through the week and renewing its decades-long tradition of celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday on Nantucket. This is the same location where the Biden family stayed during Thanksgiving last year.
Crowds gathered at Nantucket Memorial Airport and along Old South Road to watch Air Force One arrive and the Presidential motorcade pass by. Nantucket Current be covering President Biden's visit to the island throughout the week in our newsletter, and on our social media platform
