Air Force One

I was birding at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge (MINWR) today and surprised to see a new “Life Bird,”  Air Force One. About 1:25 this afternoon I heard the engines of an approaching airliner. The sound became louder and louder. I could not see anything to the North of me due to the height of the trees. I knew the President was scheduled to give a speech at Kennedy Space Center today. Could this be Air Force One? Wow, there it is, overhead.  The plane was just above the treetops, landing gear down. What a thrill. I had the camera set at a slower shutter speed than normal, thus the blurry photo. I decided to try to get another photo of the takeoff later in the day. This time I had the proper shutter speed for a better focused photograph. What a thrilling day at MINWR. My Mother was with me in the Van and was also thrilled to see Air Force One.
