Yep, President Fox is on his way to the G8 summit. A Mexican plane is not a common thing over the Russian sky.
The only thing worst than the GOP is the Democratic Party, think about it!

Does anyone know the correct routing on both directions? Will it be Gander only? On the westbound return, I am not sure if the 757 can make it from St. Petersburg non-stop to Gander.

Also, are there any other websites that track flights outside the US? Flightaware indicates MAF1 is in mid-atlantic, but once the planes leaves a certain distance from North America, the tracking stops.

Thanks!

You know that Mexican AF 757 would look so good if it was returned to all aluminum like AA's "astrojet"!!

Slightly off-topic. President Fox is pulling for the creation of G13 which will include Mexico and other developing countries... My question is that when I read the article somewhere in the media Spain was not even mentioned as a member of G8... how come?

Jeppesen has AFAIK a worldwide tracker. Too bad it works only with a subscription.

At a statute distance of 2834 nm, the LED-YQX segment is an easy shot for a B752; a standard version could fly 1,000 nm more. TP-01 (as it is known when carrying the President, in his quality of supreme commander of the Mexican Armed Forces) has got extra fuel tanks, and travels very light when compared to a standard B752.

Tony Blair will propose Mexico, Brazil, China, India, and South Africa be admited in, to form the G13 group. 'Hope it goes thru'.

I highly doubt any Russian spotter will be able to capture a pic of the a/c because Pulkovo airport is closed when the leaders arrive. It's definitely a no-go zone for regular people.

I landed in MCO right by AF1. It was quite a site. Looking down and wondering about snipers looking at you.
