See a British narrated video of the Obamas arrival in London here.
Raw video of the arrival of Air Force One:

BBC: President Obama was met at Stansted Airport, north of London, by UK Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair Darling and a senior official from the US Embassy.
He then boarded the presidential helicopter Marine One to make the short journey to central London where he will stay at the US ambassador's residence.
Before the start of the G20 summit of world leaders on Thursday, Mr Obama will hold extensive talks with Gordon Brown, meet the UK opposition leader David Cameron and have a private audience with the Queen.
The president is also scheduled to hold bi-lateral meetings with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, Chinese President Hu Jintao, Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, South Korean President Lee Myung-bak and King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia.

The president's wife, Michelle Obama, will take part in a series of engagements with Sarah Brown, the prime minister's wife.
Mr Brown is keen for world leaders to reach agreement on a new set of rules for regulating global finance as well as measures to boost economic demand and support poorer countries.
