    ..........Just flew over my house headed for DC. Big, beautiful blue and white 747. Grabbed my camera, ran outside and dropped the damn thing. Batteries all over the sidewalk. Oh well, Air Force Two is heading back home in 20 minutes. I'll try to catch it.

    May as well. Winds in DC right now are reported to be at 70 MPH. Can't land in that kind of wind.

    They can, but they don't like to. Crosswind landings are fun.

    Damn you Hoss. I clicked in here thinking it was a sports thread with a partial score.

    Friend was on the bridge of a destroyer in the Persian Gulf when AF1 flew over. A dufus locked on the weapons system to see what would happen. It broke the lock within a second. And the guy was scrubbing decks for weeks.

    I don't think a 747 runs on batteries. If it did, those would have to be some big-ass Duracells.
