OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Air Force One has taken off from Tinker Air Force Base, carrying away President Barack Obama after his two-day visit to Oklahoma.

While in the state, the president met with young people in Durant on Wednesday and touted the Internet as a necessity, not a luxury. On Thursday, he visited with prisoners at the El Reno federal correctional facility about changes he’d like to see in the criminal justice system.

Obama made his way out of Oklahoma with considerable less fanfare than that at his arrival. He traveled from El Reno to Tinker on Marine One and went directly to Air Force One with only a brief wave to the crowd that had gathered.
