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).
Regards
Andreas



I know it's only VfB but I like it!

They do accept pics with people in them. Enlarge this one and read the caption. You can actually get in trouble but I don't mind if I get in the right sort of trouble that this photographer got into

To everybody who wrote replies:

Send me photos of the presidents aircrafts (ANDREAS!!!). And Patrick: I think they'll tell the time of arrival in the tadio and television (Tagesschau?).

Last week they said he might even come a day later (so just for one day). I don't know if that's true but might be an option considering the reactions you hear on TV from people in Berlin.

I will watch the Tagesthemen tonight (like almost every day). I hope that they show a few pictures of the Air Force one as well as from the other planes that arrived with President Bush in Berlin.

Guten Tag,

Is it still plan at 20.30 Berlin time?

which runway is active at TXL today?

Do you know the road Bush will use between TXL and Mitte?

I have a flight at 20h00, do you know if they plan a delay for schedule airline?

Thanks,

aad665

Just had a look at Tegel flight arrivals and found this.
UA 9001
Camp Springs
Tegel
11:00

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.
