Joe Biden in Warsaw

Good to know at times like these that Poland has got strong allies across the Atlantic. Passing through Warsaw Okecie airport today, I spied Air Force Two on the military apron. This is a Boeing C-32A, 80002, a military VIP version of the Boeing 757 commercial airliner. It had just brought US vice-president Joe Biden to Warsaw for talks with Polish premier Donald Tusk regarding the Russian invasion of Crimea.

Mr Biden's visit was preceded on Sunday by the arrival of a C-17 transport aircraft bearing all the necessary requisites for a vice-presidential visit. Takes me back to those days back in May 2011 when Barrack Obama visited Warsaw. That was a real feast for plane-spotters!

This time two years ago:
Motive power for the coal and oil trains that pass Jeziorki

This time six years ago:
Sleet, snow, no sign of spring
