Was anyone out on Hog Island for this?
My guess would probably be 'No'. Usually when Air Force One is approaching PHL
, Philadelphia Police establish a roadblock barricade perimeter around the airport; no doubt, police probably did a 'sweep' along Enterprise Ave., Island Ave., Fort Mifflin, Hog Island, and Tinicum Island Roads prior to the plane coming in. This practice was done even before 9/11
Back in '96, I was heading south on I-95 along the double-decker Girard Point Bridge at the time when I saw Air Force One come in for a landing. When passing the Enterprise Ave. exit (#15), I saw police cars blocking the exit. I believe that the Bartram Ave. exit (#14) was also blocked then.
For today's visit, I am assuming that the similar thing was done.
