U.S. Presidential TFR Klgb 02-16-2012

Fri Feb 17, 2012 5:50 am

Every Pilot knows that when the U.S. President, or other VIP's with the same status, is coming to your City, Town or State, the FAA issues what's called a TFR (Temporary Flight Restrictions) which basically means a pilot had better be on a IFR Flight Plan to/from any airports within this TFR. Exemptions are approved Law Enforcement, Fire Fighting, Military Aircraft directly supporting the United S...tates Secret Service (USSS) and the Office of the Vice President of the United States, and MEDEVAC/Air Ambulance Flights.

I don't know thw whole story yet, but when one arrives to your airport, escorted by U.S. Fighters, then is directed to a secluded part of the airport (KLGB's Run-up area), met by Heavily Armed Airport and City of Long Beach Police, Aircraft Searched and Baggage Removed ........................ One can only guess what happened. Unfortunitely I missed the Pilot becoming aquainted with the asphalt.

I'd love to know the excuse, I'll keep ya posted if I hear anything.
