Grandstanding for Conrad Burns I presume. Hell...even if I don't agree with the man's politics...seeing Air Force One was rather swanky. I couldn't tell if it was 82-8000 or 92-9000. Either way...it was pretty saweet. I even saw El Presidente himself board her. And damn was that thing quiet when she took off.

Quoting GQfluffy (Thread starter):

I believe I have heard it take off from 7 miles away before. That's the distance between my house and Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson. I think it was AF1 because it was the only plane in the area and the time was right. I heard rumbling and about a minute later I could see it flying to the Southeast.

EDIT: This is #500 for me. I don't expect anyone to care though.

I got to see AF1 Take of from Elmendorf AFB back in 2002. I was a ways away driving, it shot into the air much faster than the other 747s that take off out of ANC. I am sure it has lots to do with the load factors on the respective planes. A heavilty loaded cargo vs one with 100 or so people in it. I may not be a GWB fan, but I do love seein AF1 when the chance arises.
