wow. Bet the Secret Service is REAL happy anyone can take pics of this giant bird from your vantage point. Doesn't seem too secure?

Is this Sky Harbor in Phoenix

Yes, this is at KPHX. Secret service was kicking people off of the very top level of the parking garage, but they really didn't care about anyone on levels below.

Very confusing commentary. AF1 is not a specific aircraft. It is a radio call sign used by an aircraft carrying the President, ANY AIRCRAFT. AF2 is the radio call sign used by an aircraft carrying the V.P., ANY AIRCRAFT.
Sky Harbor for sure, as our POTUS likely takes the option to "Cross the Street".
With at least 60 flights in/out of PHX, I've only once had the experience of crossing the street to get to SW Terminal C.
Note also below that there is no record of the AF-1 or 2 flights.
That would be cool to see on these underutilized aircraft.
I doubt either aircraft have even 5,000 hours!
Also wonder if they were re-engined or just had the cowling mods update, etc.

I see that my comments are quite removed, but I suspect these aircraft have more hours than we would probably expect. Do they have the hours of commercial aircraft, no. But, these birds have been in service since 1990. And, when traveling outside the USA, it is not unheard of for the other aircraft to shadow the President's travels. They are beautiful planes though and love seeing them visit my hometown.
