First time I ever saw this, wondering if it is due to recent conflicts around the world. Seeing two AF1 planes in the air at the same time, 82-8000 (typically the smaller backup AF1) and 92-9000, as POTUS travels to Kenner LA.

Just found the 82-8000 AF1 based upon the above tip. Screenshot_20200113-185919.jpg

Edit: watched landing, went to end of 11 and then made u-turn and rolled back half-way on 11 before pulling off. Neat.

@w2xq check same general area and you'll see the second AF1 92-9000
Thanks. AF1 92-9000 may have already landed and turned off its transmitter when I got the screenshot. I'll look later this evening for the return trip. (I really like this Android app.) I assume he'll be airborne to the rally airing against the Dem debate tomorrow.

Big game for LSU and Clemson.. Potus attending.
Just saw NICE 02 KC-10 from McGuire headed down that way for CAP Tanker duty.
NICE 01 KC-10 from Travis already there.. Maybe thirsty La ANG F-15's in CAP?

@Mark have you ever seen two planes designated as AF1 in the air at the same time?
Yes,they play games with that mode s callsign some times when both are up.
Sometimes on the ATC radio callsign SAM 45 mode s regardless is the real AF-1 but they keep folks guessing like it should be.

Using New Broadcastify Dashboard to listen to KMSY and LA State Police as motorcade makes it's way to the airport, watching ADS-B Exchange as NICE 2 continues to fly overhead. POTUS over an hour late heading out.

Actually the duties going to the 100th FS (F-16C, AL ANG). Noble 01, 02 left Montgomery around 2219z cleared round robin as filed. They haven’t RTB yet.

Backup 09-0017 departed Biloxi a few minutes ago
The way it’s circling looks like it’s waiting for him to take off, the lead plane that checks the weather and turbulence for the big boy.

I call *BS* on your statement. And for the rest of you, the C-25As are 82-8000 & 82-9000.
