President Bush arrived at Columbia Airport on Tuesday

April 11, 2006
By: Tim Walker
State Capital Bureau

President Bush's plane landed in Columbia on his way to several meetings in the capital city.

Tim Walker has more from Jefferson City.

Fire trucks blocked the entrance to the runway and a bomb sniffing dod checked every camera and bag in the area.

And finally Air Force One arrived to a flurry of camera shutters.

The president touched down about 25 minutes late and after a few handshakes immediately left for the capitol city.

Meanwhile, across the street, protestors played a guessing game.

The motorcade never did end up passing the several dozen protestors who stood beside the road for several hours holding signs and chanting.

"(We) made him make a banner, saying 'we support our President', so he would look at us and we could wave at him, and it worked, cause he waved at us!"
