He is in Camp David last time I heard...Perhaps he is coming here this week. Last few times he came to New York, he flew into a nearby AFB and choppered into the Downtown heliport...But it's entirely possible that he is coming.
I remember Clinton coming to JFK in 1998 or so...They had the military aircraft parked behind the TWA hangar and the Belt Parkway Westbound was entirely shut down for his motorcade.

A single C-5 and two 'sh*thooks' is a 'huge' military presence...??? Maybe it's just a NY ANG C-5 stopping by for a short visit or to pick up the Chinhooks. BTW- They are using the C-17 for the Presidential motorcade transport. The C-5 is way too big......

No idea, but I've seen them pass through my airport on the way elsewhere. I remember one time I was on the ramp and saw it approching and said "Hey, that's an H-61..!!, HEY, that's a GREEN H-61..!! HEY.. it's got a white top...HEY, that's Marine 1...!!! When it's flying on a non-Presidentail mission they remove the Presidential Seal from the doors. Notice the pictures below.

On Saturday around 12 noon I saw two of the Marine One helicopters escorted by 3-4 Chinocks flying over the NJ side of the Hudson they went past the Intrepid up to Edwater NJ and then swung back around and came back South the same direction they came. They were flying at very low altitude, it almost looked as if they were taking the President on a sight seeing flight around Manhattan.

The 3 military aircraft passed by my house earlier on their way to Kings Point and just passed by again headed back to JFK about 15 minutes ago(1140 EDT) so I guess he is headed back to D.C. Nice to see them flying so low...damn they are noisy though! LOL!!!
