Spotting Air Force One In DEL India

Fri Feb 24, 2006 6:31 pm

Guys,

With Bush flying in next week, any idea when does he touch down. Would it possible to spot Air Force 1 from the jaipur Highway location?

Is it worth the risk?

He would also be going to HYD, will the 742 go or they will be using the smaller plane?

Lots of activity here in DEL....

AFAIK!! It should be on the Air Force side of Palam, so I doubt it will be visible from NH8. But whereever it will be, the area shall be well lit because of security reasons. Try hunting at night.

Risky offcourse, but then benefits are in proportion to risk. Photography is a different thing, but nobady can deny you a glimpse. Moreover you won't need flash either during day or night, so roll down the glass of your back seat and Click!!

I think that shall be kept secret till the last moment.

He'll be taking the 747 to HYD. It will be parked out near the IAF part of the airport.
