Yep! This is exactly I heard about them into their radio today and is that PHX was not closed with the freeway either. Can you anyone please have make find out with their flight tracker for the president Bush and I knew that he was here in Arizona many times before and why?

Scotty, for obvious reasons there would probably be no "flight tracker" for Air Force One just as there's no flight tracker for any other military aircraft.

When Air Force One came in they just closed down the north runway. I was on the ramp when she arrived. They were allowing take offs from the south runways when AF1 was in the pattern. I was quite surpised that they did that but I am not familiar with the regulations on dealing with AF1.

It was kind of cool. They did a visual inspection of the runway 15 min before arrival. As soon as AF1 pulled off rnwy 8 a black Chevy Suburban and a grey Van came from somwhere on the norteast part of the field and pulled in behind and trailed the aircraft to the executive terminal. I also heard that their were snipers placed around the airport.
