Three American air force aircraft are at Nadi International Airport.

The aircraft are on stand-by as American President Barrack Obama flies into Brisbane for the G20 summit.

The three aircraft are Boeing KC 135 Stratotankers. These are airborne receivers, and aerial refueling aircrafts.

The KC-135 was the US Air Force’s first jet-powered refueling tanker.

It has been more than five years since Fiji played host to American air force aircraft.

Normally, such American aircrafts would go to Pago Pago Airport, American Samoa.

The American Embassy in Fiji is remaining tightlipped about their decision to have the aircraft at Nadi International Airport.

The aircraft will remain at Nadi for the next three days and will leave when Mr Obama flies out of Brisbane.
