King Faisal came to Williamsburg on his way to meet President Johnson for his first official state visit. Due to some logistical changes at the last minute, King Faisal arrived by helicopter around midnight. The heliport at the Williamsburg Inn was hurriedly adapted for night use through the use of floodlights.
