Yes, yes you did see Air Force 1 at RDU this morning. The plane that normally carries the president is practicing here this am. pic.twitter.com/pd7OVlpCoq— RDU Int'l Airport (@RDUAirport) August 28, 2017
The plane has been seen circling the airport and conducting "touch and go" landings all morning. The practice runs are conducted at various airports around the country.
We don't control air traffic patterns. The Air Force is using one of the Air Force 1 planes to practice & its making low passes over Umstead— RDU Int'l Airport (@RDUAirport) August 28, 2017
