I think Marine 1 (and 2) just flew right over my house.

I heard that President Biden is on his way to GA to visit President Carter. Maybe this was him?

1. Do you live in DC? I don't think they've left the District yet...

5. Actually, near Dulles airport - and they were headed in that direction, from the Potomac.

6. Yeah, I think it's about right time...

per the schedule posted elsewhere. He's headed to JB Andrews to board AF1.

7. Oh - I misunderstood you. Thought you were in Georgia.

 

Not sure that this would be him or that they'd be in their way to pick him up if they were out by Dulles. But they may be part of the fleet.

2. They're olive green with white tops

 

If two of those helicopters flew over your house with the president in the area, those are surely his helicopters!

If he's not there yet, they may be heading to the air field to meet AF1 and they may fly back over you with him if you're on the flight path.

Cool!

4. Those are very likely his helicopters

 

Either flying him or going to pick him up.

9. Sounds like it.

They usually fly a decoy or two with lesser entourage members.

10. I've been checking ADSB. I haven't seen anything that looks like AF1 out of JBA.

Park Police N22PP often accompanies the Marine helicopters.

#N22PP is a B412 at altitude: 325ft Park Police Helicopter https://helicoptersofdc.com/helicopters/2-us-park-police-aviation-unit/

11. Ok - and I've never heard of Dulles being part of the picture...

But maybe there are a lot of pre-flight activities we don't know much about...?

13. My house is near the flight route from DC to Camp David

They fly close to small airports along the way in case there's a need for an emergency landing. There's one a couple of miles from my house.

When Bush and W were presidenting, and more recently, the former guy, I always saluted them with my right middle finger as they flew by.
