B-roll is supplemental or alternative footage intercut with the main shot i.e. all the other shot video clips that make up a news story etc.

If the press conference is on the 19th, then would that not suggest that "something " might already be there ? I'm thinking along the lines of the F35A deployment to Lakenheath where the backdrop to the press conference was one of the aircraft. :S

Are you suggesting it's the deployment of a broken Chinook?
