Air Force One at DFW

Postby Greg on Wed Jul 09, 2014 9:10 pm

In case you missed it, July 9 was an interesting day at DFW as Air Force One arrived carrying President Obama. The aircraft used was 9-29000 while 9-28000 staged at FTW Meacham. DFW Airport reported this was the first landing of Air Force One at DFW since 1992 (President Bush); prior to that the only other landing was for President Reagan in 1984. Despite the crowd at Founders Plaza, the landing occurred on 17R.

His C-17 support bird came in the day before and I managed to go out and shoot many night-shots of it on the old GA ramp. I expected a security presence and a quick chase-off, but only a few DFW ops guys and a whole fleet of orange cones were guarding it. Did a little light-painting and the results were sweet.

As for AF1, I never get the heads-up that she's coming and have yet to see or photograph it. When does it leave? A few hours ago I bet.
