According to news media reports, AF1 is back in the skies on Tuesday, May 5th, as it travels to Sky Harbor Int'l in Phoenix. Plans call for AF1 to arrive just after 11:30am (MST) and head back to DC just after 2pm (MST). While in Phoenix he'll be visiting the Honeywell mask production facility.

Doubt he'll be wearing one!

Does AF1 communicate with Sky Harbor tower on standard arrival/departure frequencies? Pretty sure it will be using runway 3 (north runway).

I have the final approach and tower frequencies programmed.

Which TRACON frequency is likely to be utilized?

Both are 82-8000 and 92-9000 are near Albuquerque now.
adsbexchange.com usually has more info on some of the "hidden" aircraft that other sites do not show. Keep a listen on ABQ ARTCC freqs and Phoenix Approach TRACON freqs. Air Force 1 usually lands on Runway 8/26 (largest runway at KPHX). Traffic pattern is from the East today, so Runway 26 will be in use.

Now that they are on the ground, we probably won't hear much. VIP movement will likely be Sky Harbor PD and Phoenix PD since they are not really leaving the airport. RWC H7, H8, H9, H10, H11, and H12 (all encrypted) are active. RWC G7 in the clear is active, but not sure if it is related. I just heard some quick traffic, but not enough to identify.

I'm not close enough to the airport to monitor Secret Service. Last time I tried, all was encrypted. Listen to VHF FMN 163-173MHz. I caught a lot of encrypted frequencies with NAC 001 last time I tried monitoring.

If anyone is near the airport, here are some possible Secret Service freqs that I caught in February. All were encrypted:

164.8875 NAC 001
164.9875
165.375 NAC 001
166.5125 NAC 001
167.0375
168.825 NAC 001 710
170.4375 Data?
