First-class flying for first lady

January 12, 2014
The Maui News
A 737-700 jet awaits first lady Michelle Obama on Saturday at Kahului Airport’s Gate 39. Maui District Airports Manager Marvin Moniz confirmed the aircraft, with its flight crew and Secret Service agents, were for Obama, who has been visiting media mogul Oprah Winfrey in Upcountry for a few days as an extended vacation and a 50th birthday celebration. When Obama arrived Jan. 5, Upcountry residents reported seeing a caravan of Maui police cars and tinted-window, black sport utility vehicles in the vicinity of Winfrey’s estate. A portion of Thompson Road was closed and guarded by police and Secret Service agents. Moniz said he didn’t know how long the jet for the first lady and her entourage would be on Maui.
