The President of the United States will be in Seattle he arrives at Seattle's Boeing Field around 5:20 p.m. I'm in the area and wanted to know are there any good spots in the area on Beacon Hill to watch the landing?

The control tower exhibit at the Museum of Flight would probably be a good place.  

Not sure which way it is landing, but Ruby Chow Park is at the south end of the runway.

(Turns on the local news)

Given the weather I would think landing would (have been?) from the south.

It's the 747. Stitch's suggestion of the tower at the Museum of Flight would be a good place to see him leave tomorrow. He's spending the night here. I'm not sure which side of the field they park at though.

Cool...he's been tearing it up on the campaign trail with the 757 so I was curious.

The president is leaving this morning before the Museum of Flight opens so the observation tower will be closed.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the President always use the 747 rather than the 757, which I believe is reserved for the Vice President and high-level members of the cabinet?

He came to BTV and PWM earlier this year on the 757.

Domestically, he may take the C-32 (757) when going into a smaller airport that can't handle the 747. Back during the 2004 campaign, President Bush flew into FRG on Long Island with the 757, as it only has 6800 feet available. President Obama has even come into LGA a few times in the C-37 (Gulfstream) for a "casual" visit.

Any aircraft can be used...He usually flies into Hampton Roads in the 747, however, on the campaign trail he was using the 757 when he flew into Norfolk and then subsequently into Langley. That's why I was wondering.

I didn't know that. I thought it was the 747 (or Marine One) or nothing because of the "flying Oval Office" feature if it was needed. I guess I learned something new here.

It definitely was the 747 for this visit to Seattle. Did anyone go see it takeoff? The news were reporting all morning that he was going to leave during rush hour, but he actually didn't leave until around 10am.
