Aviation Museum parking lot closed to public on Tuesday, May 21 during presidential visit

A C-17 Globemaster transport taxis past the Aviation Museum prior to takeoff on Monday, May 20.

Alas, the Aviation Museum’s grounds will be closed to the public tomorrow (Tuesday, May 21) starting around 7 a.m. due to the impending visit of Air Force One to Manchester-Boston Regional Airport.

The lot will remain closed by the U.S. Secret Service and local law enforcement until the aircraft’s departure later in the day. We’re sorry, but plane-watchers will need to find other locations to observe the President’s aircraft. Thank you in advance for understanding.

Even so, we’ve seen some impressive aircraft movements in advance of tomorrow’s visit. Today, a U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster transport visited to drop off some specialized cargo: either the presidential limo or Marine One, the helicopter that’s often deployed during presidential visits. (They didn’t stop to tell us which.)

The aircraft, a McDonnell Douglas/Boeing C-17 Globemaster III, then taxied right past the Aviation Museum of N.H. before noisily departing on Runway 17 just after noon. For more info on viewing the airfield action at the Aviation Museum, visit our page on plane-watching.
