President Barack Obama arrived at the RMAF base in Subang on Saturday for the much-awaited three-day visit.
The Air Force One jet carrying the American leader touched down at the base at 4.50pm after a six-hour flight from South Korea.
Obama was greeted by Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman and a guard-of-honour mounted by officers of the Sixth Battalion of the Royal Rangers Regiment.
Air Force One arriving in Subang Obama's visit to Malaysia is the first by a sitting US President since President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1966.
Obama's programme on the first day include a state welcoming ceremony at Parliament Square.
Obama waves as he walks out of Air Force One after landing at RMAF base in Subang.
He will later pay a courtesy call to the King and attend a state banquet at Istana Negara.
Malaysia is the third leg of Obama's four-nation tour of Asia. Prior to South Korea, he had visited Japan.
He will end the trip with a visit to the Philippines on Monday.
RMAF? He should land at the REMF.

I was going to write something here about missing planes, but I think I’ll just skip it.
He is out of the country, I guess he left Michelle in charge..
Like Jimmy Carter's 1997 down-putting, "malaise" speech about America's "crisis of confidence", I wonder if Obama will speak on how the U.S. is suffering from malaysia due to inequality of income and racism.
Don’t worry. It was the first thing everybody thought too.
Open Letter to Malaysia from the American Tea Party, and other enlightened citizens of this union; Dear Malaysia; If You Like Our President, You May Keep Our President! signed (with pleasure and great relief) The Real American People!!
He didn’t fly maylasia airlines. Darn....
Looks like the Little King didn’t get a hat.
So where’s the plane Obama.
Id have thought theyd at least give him an honorary beanie...maybe with a propellor...
