Although I religiously avoid this forum (politics) I found this was the best place to put it....

So...guess who just flew about 500' over my house????

BUSH TO VISIT MANASSAS TOMORROW

President Bush will tour Micron Technology's semiconductor manufacturing

plant and comment on fiscal responsibility tomorrow morning in Manassas.

Yup, he sure did, I heard a helicopter and a CH-47 (Chinook) flew over advance party would be my guess then a few minutes later I heard it and looked and there he went in Marine 1 I guess it was....Pretty cool

Haha, got ya fooled!

Maybe you saw him, maybe you saw the decoy chopper, another look-alike Marine One.

(all public information, been all over the news)

It's pretty amazing how they bluff, decoy and fool the public.

You'd be shocked at how much REALLY goes on....

That's a beautiful chopper though, a Sikorski. <sp?>

Won't be much longer though, Sikorski (a US company) lost the contract and Marine One will be European built soon....
