    ...which is 45% better than average.



    Vladimir's giant Ilyushin transporter carrying all his secret service psy stuff arrived yesterday. Air Force One has yet to touch down at an undisclosed location: I bet Amberley.

    GC and sunshine coast hotels are packed out with fleeing brissies.

    US marines in Ospreys planning an Obama deployment brought traffic to standstill on the city freeway by blowing thick dust all over it during rush hour.

    I thought the questions were mostly irrelevant unless one is studying economics.

    No, things are not that rosy. Don't hit your head on the glass ceiling on your way out.

    Preparations for US president Barack Obama's weekend visit to Brisbane have ramped up with the arrival of the presidential car, The Beast.
    Late this afternoon a US Air Force C-17A Globemaster III carrying the president's security personnel and equipment landed at Amberley Air Force Base ahead of the G20 Leaders' Summit.
    Among the vehicles unloaded from the military transport aircraft was the US presidential state car, known as The Beast.
    Obama: the entourage and The Beast



    A look at US president Barack Obama's retinue, including his 200 Secret Service agents, team of doctors, and the custom-made, armoured Cadillac known as The Beast.


    Two of the armoured Cadillac-badged limousines - known as Cadillac-1 when the president is travelling inside - departed the air base near Ipswich along with a series of black four-wheel-drives, believed to be carrying US protective services officers.
    The vehicles - one for the president, the other which serves as a decoy - are fitted with military grade defence systems and 20-centimetre-thick armour-plated doors.
    Mr Obama's convoy has been known to stretch up to 50 vehicles and feature a counter-assault car, media vehicles and emergency services vans.
    David White, a vintage aviation enthusiast and co-presenter of ABC digital radio program Canvas Wings, spent hours at Amberley to see the goings-on ahead of the summit.
    "There [were] at least 30 Australian police cars with [the US cargo], so it was quite a big convoy," he said.

    While the plans for Mr Obama's arrival in Australia on Air Force One on Saturday are kept secret for security reasons, Mr White said details can be pieced together from documentaries, films and previous presidential entourages.
