nice shot, one I would love to capture some time! A small nitpick though: it's only called Air Force One when the president is on board :)

Leo Thank you so much, Peter

biggerben you are quite right: any US Airforce flying object with the president on board is referred to as Air Force One -that could also be a helicopter...But according to the White House itself the 2 Boeing 747s are colloquially known as Air Force One...whereever he comes they fly in in a pair..not knowing which one he's in... It was confirmed to me that he actually arrived onboard this one... Best wishes, Peter

Well that is very ecologically friendly :))) Two birds for one man, but then he is rather important and none of us would like him shot down, we all have great hopes for him ~ Ciao nick

yeah somehow it's a crazy world Nick the two are alone for the the President. On top of that you could count a couple of transport planes for the 'Beast' (The armoured vehicle for the landbased trasport) and the endless number of Secret Service guys and their means of transportation... Best wishes, Peter

Love the title & all the info on your site. Funny how you learn more about your country from overseas:)

My daughter flew into the Cities behind Air Force One after the I-35 bridge disaster a few years back. Since she was on her way back from a summer spent in India it all went right over her head.

Lucky you to capture this shot!

Thank you Joy !! Hope your Festive Season treats you well!! :)) yes I was just so amazed seeing this plane as I went by that I had to stop for a capture :) Best wishes out of the country of Æbleskiver og Træsko, Peter

Super cool! Jeg ville gerne selv have været ude og jage den fugl der... men der var arbejde i vejen. :( - Godt nytår!

Hi Peter,

Very lucky find!! I some countries you get sent to work down a salt mine for 30 years for taking this kind of picture, and a very cold salt mine if you publish it!!

Best Wishes (and hope the secret service men don't get you!)
