Pres. Bush, with Mick Cornett by his side, is shaking hands and exchanging greetings with the crowd gathered at Tinker. He just reached out and playfully mussed up one boy’s hair, and he has stopped to scrawl some autographs.
Not sure how everyone got on the base to see him. Seems likely that they’re family members of people who work at Tinker, but that’s not confirmed.
He’s walking away from the group now. At the bottom of the stairs leading up to his plane, he has paused to hug a couple people and is now being photographed with two boys wearing polo shirts.
He’s heading up the stairs. He pauses at the top to wave goodbye, then walks inside.
The stairs retract back into the plane. The door shuts. Visit over.
