President Obama flew into the Eastern Iowa Airport today on Air Force One for his visit to Iowa City. I'll tell you this it was one impressive site to see.

Apparently Zalgo has never heard of a zoom lens. But he/she certainly got the attention they wanted.

This pic is not fake

If having a 'landmark' of some sort is the one way to debunk that it is a fake then there are may pictures out there that are 'fake'. There is no real way to prove its a fake just based on landmarks or lack thereof.

Thanks for pointing out my spelling mistake I posted the pic in a hurry last night. It is not fake trust me, it would've been pretty hard to get the plane with the runway, since I was outside the airport on a dirt road and the runway was far away.

I hope he means that it was one impressive sight to see. But then, maybe the site was impressive, also. Maybe the photographer didn't know he was to include the runway for a little local flavor.

A picture of air force one is fake? That picture doesn't have a single landmark depicted. It's just a picture of air force one. I don't understand your remark or why you think it matters? LOL

Fake may *#@# you try to get near that plane you will see how fake it is

Lissa says ... on Friday, Mar 26 at 12:49 PM

JC says ... on Friday, Mar 26 at 12:30 PM
