2pm, DEL, runway 28: two USAF C-17s thundered in. Spotters: have you clicked anything else?
Cheers, Sumantra.

Do you think it would be safe for people to try clicking the Air Force 1 or any of the other planes in the entourage at close quarters? The security is likely to be really tight.

The security understandably would be extremely tight. On the last US President's visit(s), many spotters were able to click pictures of the two VC-25s, albeit from afar, with some great zoom lenses.
Cheers, Sumantra.

Sumantra Sir...This time also some of DEL spotters have managed to snap her. Hopefully someone will post it online soon.

Nice, Shukla Sir: a USAF C-17 also roared above and landed on the same runway, albeit some four hours later, at 1pm.
Cheers, Sumantra.

Interesting..two less than the IAF's final contingent of C-17s, which also happens to be the largest C-17 order behind the USAF!
Cheers, Sumantra.
