Pope Francis arrives in the USA

Pope Francis is getting a rock-star welcome as he arrives for his first visit to the U.S.

Crowds at Andrews Air Force Base cheered as the pope's plane touched down. Shortly after, President Barack Obama walked from the air base's terminal to the plane, where the American flag and the Vatican flag are waving.

The president waved to the crowds as he accompanied his wife and daughters to the red carpet at the front of the plane.

Francis emerged to thunderous cheers, taking off his white cap as he descended the stairs on a windy and rainy day.

He smiled broadly and said hello to individual well-wishers before walking along the red carpet alongside Obama.

The pope stopped at the end of the red carpet to accept a bouquet of flowers from a young girl. Then he and Obama proceeded with their entourages past the crowd and into the terminal.
