Up close and personal with Air Force One!

Post by Northwestdc9 » 28 Mar 2010, 18:12

This past Thursday, President Obama paid a visit to my humble abode, wanting to give a speech on healthcare at the place where it started, The University of Iowa.
While I didn't much care to hear the speech, my Aunt wanted to go see Air Force One so I happily tagged along. We got to see the Motorcade, the Blackhawk aerial patrol overhead and of course Air Force One, which was spectacular. A rather large crowd of.... shall we say.... less than royalty, showed up in their trucks to witness her departure, again spectacular, out of Cedar Rapids Airport.

Nice ones Nick! My favorite encounter with AF1 was when I was at a Redskins game and it flew about 1000 feet over the stadium as it came in to land back at Andrews AFB.
