Dubya And Air Force One At MIA Monday

Sun Jun 29, 2003 9:13 am

Hiya all,

Just wondering if anyone has any information on the time of day or hour Air Force One will be visiting Miami on Monday?

Lastly, who might I expect to see at the viewing area? Hope to meet some of you guys. Just met Fabrice Nelson yesterday- was nice seeing someone else there on such a crap day (although it would clear up and the sun would shine every so often.. the runway was switched twice too but I just walked down closer to Arrow Air and got some nice shots through the fence but I screwed the weekly LTU A330 shot !!!! grrrrr)

thanks,
Serge

I was just wondering that about his visits to SFO and LAX on Friday of this past week.

Yeah I met up with Fabrice when I was down there a few weeks ago....he was in uniform and all I could think was "oh great, I'm gonna get kicked out"  Big grin
Very nice guy.

Word is, if you throw Dubya a few hundred dollar bills marked "campaign '04" he might let you get a closer viewing spot.

well, not really.

Just got back from a day of spotting at MIA- the C-5 arrived 6:20pm but I didn't get a shot (was walking back from the customs building).

The word is AF1 might be in sometime in the morning 10-11AM tomorrow...

I don't know if anyone's tried this. But check the NOTAMs for the effective times for the TFR's which follow the president and Air Force One. AF1 and President are supposed to arrive during the timeframe of the NOTAM.

Like for the time when he visited San Diego for the ride out to the Abraham Lincoln, the TFR effective times were about 1 hr before his arrival in Air Force 1 to 1 hr after his scheduled departure in the S-3 Viking. The TFR was reestablished again just before he returned via helicopter until about 1 hr after he departed in AF1.

Maybe they need to mix up the effective times of these TFRs.
