I attended the Trump rally last Friday night. Mesa is my backyard.
There were thousands of people and a line over a mile long.

I was roughly 200 people too far back in line in order to get a seat within the hangar to see Trump personally.

Prior to the end of the rally, I headed around to the opposite side of the airfield.
This allowed me to capture the President's departure and the escort.

There were 5 aircraft in total (that we could see).

It was quite a site. The sound of all 5 aircraft was pretty awesome.

Holy Scit!! Thanks for posting! After seeing those take off and fly so slow, hearing the sound and seeing the light markings, I now know what I probably have been seeing flying above my house at nights and especially flying over this huge parking lot area (almost 1 sq mile of paved surface with odd activity at times) between 11pm & 2am years ago. I'd see what I thought was a 1-3 helicopters flying above this lot like it was doing very slow surveillance (it's a business) and it looked like they all flew off away from me, but I think they landed there. I never thought about the possibilities of these and I could never figure out why there would be a patrol helicopter let alone a few over this place at that time of night as they never have anything like that. The only difference was they had blue/red/white strobe lights at the bottom of the air craft that were strobbing at an odd pattern I had never seen before.

This is an outrage!

It was kind of funny seeing the C-5 and C-17 sitting on the hard stands beside the passenger terminal at Sky Harbor.

I did a lot of Presidential support back when I flew C-141s...we never broke, I guess that is why they used us so much. As the old story goes what do you call 2 C-5s and only one is on jacks....they only have one set of jacks...

The presidential transports are the only C-5s I've never seen broken.

Back in the 80s our sister squadron at Travis AFB was C-5 and they could never make it past Hickam and we would go around the world and hardly have a write-up.

Yeah, it was amazing how many jets of all types made it to us and "broke".

The secret was they actually left home broke...

We always knew exactly how much money the crew had at any given moment. It usually went something like this-

Us-What's your status?
Them-Code 3 for (insert convenient failure)
U-Ok, we'll check with supply and see if we have to order parts or if we have them on hand. Go ahead down to the hotel and we'll let you know.
T-Ok, take your time.

A few days go by.

T- So how long until parts get here?(Realizing it was more expensive than they thought.)

A few more days-

T- Hey, we really need to get the jet fixed and get home. (Still some money, but pretty low)

Finally-

T- You know what, we're ok to fly it home like that. We'll just fix it when we get home.
