Trump's Arrival to KABE - 5/14/20

Hello everyone!

On May 14th, President Trump had a short visit to a medical distribution center in Allentown. This was my first time spotting a presidential aircraft, and it was very exciting. It was also my first time spotting at KABE.

Enjoy the following photos from the spotting trip!

09-0017, a VC-32A, arriving on RW24 with President Trump on board.

President Trump departing KABE, after a very short visit to the medical distribution center in Allentown.

99-0062, a C-17 arriving to KABE, and exiting RW24 to pick up President Trump’s motorcade.

An interesting approach of four V-22B Ospreys, arriving at KABE to pick up who I believe were secret service officers, after they assisted in Trump’s visit.

16-3259, a VH-60N, departing KABE.

Hey Byran: Why is the FBI here?

Byran: …


Thanks! Is that near where the truck depot is?

when the president is using air force 2 plane, is the plane callsign air force 1?


Yes. (Ten characters)

Whenever the president is on board the aircraft, the call sign is Air Force 1. Air Force 2 is used when the Vice President is on board.
