Presidential flights (Standsted) 3rd June

Post by Yunglee » Wed Jun 05, 2019 6:24 am

Fantastic trip from South Yorkshire down to Stansted to catch Air Force One on the 3rd June. It was a crazy early start; 2:30am and getting home at 6pm :O Really pleased to see the helicopters as I didn't think I would and the weather was perfect :clap:
