    Hey Richard…great tweets!
    Would love to take photos of Air Force One when President Obama arrives. Can a humble English teacher with a love of photography get anywhere near?

    Thanks,

      I don’t have any experience of this. I think it would be very difficult. I presume he is landing at the Air Force section of the airport.
