VC25/AF1 At LAX

Tue Sep 27, 2011 2:42 am

Anyone get a good shot of Obama landing at LAX this afternoon? I saw him coming in, but was at the south side along with no camera.

Unfortunately no - I didn't even hear that he was coming to town till I got home from work today.

However, sort of funny - my work is right near Torrance Airport. I was standing outside with a couple guys on Friday, and a large helicopter that had just taken off flew over us. My exact comment was "is Obama in town or something?"

It looked a lot like the Marine 1 helos (to my extremely untrained eye). Dunno if they send those in advance, and if they would park them at TOA as opposed to LAX or SMO or something.

Unfortunately didn't have a camera with me.
I'm watching Jeopardy. The category is worst Madonna songs. "This one from 1987 is terrible".
