Marine One and Osprey
Lens: DA 55-300 Camera: K-1 
Posted By: DeadJohn, 09-26-2017, 09:31 PM

President Trump visited NYC today. "Marine One" is the call sign given to any Marine aircraft carrying the President. The usual Marine One (which travels with 1 or more decoys for security purposes) is a large aircraft. My office building is over 3 million square feet, and even the far end vibrates as the helicopters approach.

The V-22 Osprey is the tilt-rotor at the bottom of this post. Several are used to transport the large contingent of support staff who travel with the President.

Thanks, everyone.

Here's a story about the photo taking. I work in a an open-plan office. Every time the President arrives a few people look out the window. While I was taking my photos, a co-worker with a cell phone said "my phone takes great photos, why do you need a camera?" After seeing photos I got the "your camera takes nice photos" response.

His photos show interior reflections from the window, so much DoF that the window dirt is noticeable, digital zoom artifacts, etc.

Nice shots. I bet Twump was worried about messing up his hair.
