The most secured, sophisticated, and also cleaned, aircraft of the world. Also known to someones as the "Flying White House." I would like to see a 747-400 turned into "Air Force One". I saw this one in México once when Bush had a meetin´ with Vicente Fox. What a plane. T.B.

Wow! Lucky! I just tried to get within a mile of the airport at DAB when he was in town and they yelled at me so I had a horrible shot of his approach. Excellent shot!

Nice photo, I bet the sniper guys were keeping one hell of an eye on you, Isnt that kind of risk and un-wantedness the thrill of capturing AF1! I wonder if Mr President has a order in for the A380 :D

Nice shot. Couldn't Bush take something a bit more fuel efficient for a short flight from DC to Nashville? Especially with his recent speech about Americans being addicted to oil...

Looks like the sniper on the left is aiming in at you, no joke! You risked your life for this photo, believe it! Lucky for you they have powerful enough scopes to probably tell that all you were pointing at the bird was a camera. A rookie or cocky sniper may have drilled you through the heart, be careful!

"Your mission, should you decide to take it... This device will self-destruct in five- seconds". Shades of Mission Impossible 3, here. Really, I couldn't help it, Tee-Hee! Thanks for sharing this picture, Matt.
