Viewing Air Force 1 landing today?

By thehutch - 16 November 2011 62

Does anyone know of a good vantage spot to watch & take photos of AF1 landing???

Preferably a location where a Secret Service sniper won’t pick me off 🙂

What’s Your opinion?

Now tell me. In all honesty who are these Fighter jets protecting the “POTUSA” from way up there in Australian air space? Aliens from outa space?

My head is filled with the sounds of F/A-18 Hornets flying way above at the moment.

He is going to visit a school here, because it is education week in the US. That seems kind of woerd to me.

Mount Pleasant has a pretty good view of the airport and is a bit closer, although not as high.

This.

Landing from the North so the Majura Rd McDonalds car park could be good. I doubt the Secret Service would deny people their Big Macs!

If RWY35 is used then the top level of the BOP carpark will serve you well. It looks over Taxiway Bravo and the the active is just a bit further over.

If you’ve got a decent zoom surely the top of Mount Ainslie?

The merkins don’t seem to actually be trying to make friends.

I’m going to give it a go – Mount Ainslie – with a 300mm

The wind is being tricky today. It suddenly swung to the SE early this morning, so they’ve been landing and taking off from the north (a bit unusual). The forecast says that my mid afternoon it should be from the ENE, which will have them landing/taking off from the normal southerly direction.

I reckon from behind Costco/Trade Secret would be a pretty good spot, especially if it’s coming in from the north. But they evidently have plans for the Majura precinct, there’s piles of barriers at every intersection which they evidently plan to set up later.
