US President Bush is coming to Berlin today. In the newspapers it was said that he'll arrive with two 747s. So if there is an "Berliner" please try to take some good photos with all the stuff around the aircraft (scenery, secret service...)!
These photos could get to the editors choice part of a.net!!!

I saw Bill Clinton come to Berlin in the early 90s: 2 Airforce 747 and 1 chartered Northwest 747. They were parked on the part of TXL that is opposite the viewers terrace..forget about the scenery, you need at least 500mm on your camera to get a decent pic of the aircraft (still have some from this visit, but very bad quality).

Just had a look at Tegel flight arrivals and found this.
What does it mean ?
Aad665, I don't know when he'll arrive but at FRA the ATC controllers once told me that about half an hour before and after the arrival of the US president the airspace around the airport is closed. That means no take-offs/landings for other airplanes.
