‘Marine One’ helicopter arrives in Hanoi ahead of US President Biden’s visit

September 06, 2023

A VH-60N helicopter, commonly known as ‘Marine One’ when serving a U.S. president, has been sent to Hanoi in preparation for U.S. President Joe Biden’s two-day visit to Vietnam starting this weekend. The title Marine One was first used in 1957 for a Bell UH-13J Sioux helicopter when it served U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Before the arrival of the VH-60N helicopter, five C-17 flights touched down at Noi Bai over the past several days, carrying specialized cars, equipment, and supplies to serve President Biden’s upcoming visit, slated for September 10-11. The visit has been scheduled at the invitation of Vietnam’s Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong, marking 10 years of comprehensive partnership between the two countries. This is also the first time an American president has accepted an invitation to visit Vietnam from a General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam.
