Anyone in Cinci that could help with the type of Aircraft hes flying on, it would be very much appreciated. I am assuming a C-32, but, I suppose they could get the 747 in and out on 6500ft.
Is he going into CVG or LUK? If it is CVG they should have no problem with the VC-25 as all runways are >= 10,000 ft. If it is LUK, then of course it would probably be something smaller. Smaller than a C-32 even.
Edit: Sorry, the 6,500 is for TVC. Dope!, I need to read more carefully next time.
The TVC feed is running if you want to listen in. We have F16's and an E-3 Sentry (dunno if hes still there) circling over the area. They are communicating on VHF, Minneapolis Center is calling out the traffic for them. Air Space shut down until 600pm EDT.
Somewhat dead now as the only traffic allowed in the area is airline traffic heading to TVC. All other stuff is flying around TVC. 30 Mile radius up to infinity.

Well you better start taking offense to the tax payer money used to support the President's campaign, because as a perk, the incumbent President gets to use Air Force One for all election activities. It is not only Bush, but Clinton, Bush Sr., Reagen and Carter used it....and the list goes on. Every sitting President gets to use it for their re-elections....and you and I pay for it.
