"POTUS on Station." Newburgh, NY 23•Sept.•09

Air Force One is seen parked between two C-5A Galaxy cargo aircraft at the Stewart Air National Guard Base in Newburgh, NY on Wednesday, September 23, 2009. President Barack Obama was in Troy, NY on Monday and addressed the United Nations General Assembly today in New York. Times Herald-Record/CHET GORDON

Always good to see this airplane, even if she's just parked in the far corner of the airport. Got the approval today to photograph Air Force One here in my area, as President Obama has been the NY area the past three days, finishing up today by addressing the UN General Assembly in Manhattan. Rushed home to grab my personal Nikon D-1X cameras and 300mm f/2.8 (manual focus) + 1.4 tele-extender to make a few hand-held images. I know it's a long shot view, but still a good archive image for potential future stories. -cg
