    I've have seen Presidents but never that beautiful blue bird AF1. I'm on the approach to the airport. Most planes fly directly over my house on the way in. I'd like to get a close-up but the President will be speaking at the airport and it's sure to be a zoo out there. We don't usually get a plane of that size in here. We have had some big cargo planes have problems. I'll have the scanner on and hopefully hear the traffic to the ground.

    Years ago I saw it on the tarmac. Truly impressive. Raymond Lowey hit it out of the park with that design. Dignified yet powerful. Perhaps the personification of Teddy Roosevelt's maxim "Speak softly and carry a big stick" .
