So whose going to bite the bullet and head over to Flying Tigers with a camera? You don't think they'll be any secret service watching that fence line do you?!?
Anyway, it says in the paper he'll be speaking about the Patriot Act and it's importance....he is using Buffalo as a stop partly because of the "Lackawanna six" criminal case.
I fondly remember the AA
DC-10 and Eastern L1011 days at BUF
but I have never seen or heard of a 747 there. Back in the mid-70's My parents used to fly on charter 747's from Niagara Falls airport to Portugal and some other points in Europe. I see many of the pictures on A.Net and realize 747's use runways shorter than Buffalo's on a regular basis so it certainly can be done. I would bet on the 757 version of AF1 though.
Hopefully one of you guys can get some pictures.
