Air Force One departs Long Beach Airport
At 5:48pm local, Air Force One departed LGB on rwy 12. The VC-25 taxied from taxiway Alpha onto the runway and lined up. A minute later she was rolling down the runway with the airplane being airborne with less than 2,000 ft of runway left. The plane dissappeared into the fog about 1/2 after the end of the runway and 2 minutes later it was seen flying overhead towards Las Vegas. The plane was cleared Seal Beach, Daggett, Las Vegas to final destination and at an altitude of 33,000 ft. Pictures will be posted in a few weeks when my film comes back from processing.
