President Trump and Vice President Pence on Thursday will travel on separate planes from Washington, D.C. to Florida, where they will tour the devastation from Hurricane Irma together.

Both Air Force One and Two will be used by the White House to get Trump and Pence to Florida.
Pence will arrive first, and then both will receive a briefing around 11 a.m. EST at an airplane hanger in Fort Myers on relief efforts. The two will then separately fly 40 miles south to Naples, also located on the west coast of the Sunshine State.
Shortly after noon, both will visit with people affected by Hurricane Irma in Naples.
Trump will leave Naples and return to Fort Myers and depart Florida 20 minutes later for Washington, D.C. Trump and first lady Melania Trump will host the White House Historical Association for dinner at 7 p.m.
Pence will follow Trump's lead and return to Washington about an hour afterward.
