Air Force One

I'm not getting political or anything but I wanted to share these pictures. My office is in the flight path of Port Columbus, and on any given day that is pretty cool, we can see the pilots in the planes as they are coming in for a landing, we are that close. If M1 is here all I have to do is give him a snack and sit him in front of a window, he'll watch the planes for hours.

On days like today every one is watching the clocks and the windows a little more closely than usual. Every one likes to watch on days like this. The President just landed here in Cbus, if you've never seen Air Force One let me just tell you, it is the BIGGEST FREAKIN' PLANE I've ever seen. We didn't see the 'escort planes' that usually come first, just had a helicopter checking the wind. But it's still a sight to see.

Faithful readers, I give you Air Force One coming in for a landing....



The black in the last shot is the awning for our office building...

These photos are in no way meant to over shadow the killer dinner recipe in the previous post!! HAHAHA

A couple years ago President Bush made a trip to Idaho - I think there is only one run-way in the state that is big enough to accommodate Air Force One. We went to watch it take off and it is cool! We're big fans of airplanes around here. Thanks for sharing...

Over from SITS.

What a cool post! My Dad did some preliminary work when the Prez came our way. He got to meet a lot of the Secret Service and got an "official SS" badge and a bunch of stuff. He's good at making friends no matter where he is and getting those kinds of things.
Love the photos!

That has be be very neat to see... I have to say though that after 9/11 I may be scared to be that close to the airport.
