AF1 At SRQ Last Week...

Mon Nov 06, 2006 11:47 am

That's a short runway for a 747, so how short a runway can it take off from? It flew on to south florida, so it obviously didn't need much fuel, but still, I just left on an ERJ145 and we took most of the runway...

The runway is what, 8500-9000 ft? That's enough.

I remember seeing AF1 on December 3, 1991 when Bush Sr. visited. The runway was only 7,000 feet back then.
