It's the President, right overhead

air force one over albany


One of the pics we snapped as Air Force One flew in over Albany today.

Noted: AF1 is a rather large airplane.

A few more pics after the jump.

There are State Police at every exit and turn around on 890/90. For fun, we decided to go past ALB and got a great look at Air Force One. And a few Secret Service SUVs. ;)

Thanks for the photos. I was feeling a little left out of the whole visit as I was stuck in my office.

Cool... they flew over my house too, though not as low as the the incoming flights to Albany often do.

Actually Air Force One is not a specific plane. It is just a call sign. Any Air Force plane the President is on becomes Air Force One.
Otherwise, when he is not on it, the regular call sign is used.

I've been on a huge West Wing kick lately, so I saw those pictures and immediately pictured President Bartlet and company flying over Schenectady

Really wish I was more careful when painting the flashing :)
