Is Trump Coming to LV This Thursday?


A friend of mine - a private pilot - just received notice from the FAA of flight restriction on Thursday for an impending visit from President Donald Trump. There will be a 10-mile radius no-fly zone. I caution that neither my friend nor I know for sure.

Here's part of the notice:

No pilots may operate an aircraft in the areas covered by this NOTAM (except as described).

Except as specified below and/or unless authorized by ATC in consultation with the air traffic security coordinator via the domestic events network (DEN):

A. All aircraft operations within the 10 NMR area(s) listed above, known as the inner core(s), are prohibited except for: Approved law enforcement, military aircraft directly supporting the United States Secret Service (USSS) and the office of the President of the United States, approved air ambulance flights, and regularly scheduled commercial passenger and all-cargo carriers operating under one of the following TSA-Approved standard security programs/procedures: aircraft operator standard security program (AOSSP), full all-cargo aircraft operator standard security program (FACAOSSP), model security program (MSP), twelve five standard security program (TFSSP) all cargo, or all-cargo international security procedure (ACISP) and are arriving into and/or departing from 14 cfr part 139 airports. All emergency/life-saving flight (medical/law enforcement/firefighting) operations must coordinate with ATC prior to their departure at 610-264-4530 to avoid potential delays.

B. For operations within the airspace between the 10 NMR and 30 NMR area(s) listed above, known as the outer ring(s): All aircraft operating within the outer ring(s) listed above are limited to aircraft arriving or departing local airfields, and workload permitting, ATC may authorize transit operations. Aircraft may not loiter. All aircraft must be on an active IFR or filed VFR flight plan with a discrete code assigned by an Air Traffic Control (ATC) facility. Aircraft must be squawking the discrete code prior to departure and at all times while in the TFR and must remain in two-way radio communications with ATC.

C. The following operations are not authorized within this TFR: flight training, practice instrument approaches, aerobatic flight, glider operations, seaplane operations, parachute operations, ultralight, hang gliding, balloon operations, agriculture/crop dusting, animal population control flight operations, banner towing operations, sightseeing operations, maintenance test flights, model aircraft operations, model rocketry, unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), and utility and pipeline survey operations.

D. UAS operators who do not comply with applicable airspace restrictions are warned that pursuant to 10 U.S.C. section 130I and 6 U.S.C. section 124N, the Department of Defense (DOD), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) or the Department of Justice (DOJ) may take security action that results in the interference, disruption, seizure, damaging, or destruction of unmanned aircraft deemed to pose a credible safety or security threat to protected personnel, facilities, or assets.

E. FAA recommends that all aircraft operators check NOTAMs frequently for possible changes to this TFR prior to operations within this region.

F. The System Operations Support Center (SOSC), is the point of contact and coordination facility for any questions regarding this NOTAM and are available daily from 0700-2300 EDT, phone 202-267-8276

I should be chosen to appear behind His Pompadoredness because I will cheer even before he says something stupid, and just not stop.

See how excited we are at the mere possibility that he will come to the LV so that we all can share of particular version of the coronavirus? This is what makes America truly great (apart from the hats, I guess).

If necessary, I will distract Ivanka by trying to talk to her about homemaking. Then His Adulteryness can half some "free time", you know?

Sorry I have such little detail, but I thought I should report what little I do have.

You are correct sir. MAGA

No better time than now, as Wolf is shooting his own party in the ass as a lame duck. Good time to capitalize on Wolf hatred and club Dems with their support of Wolf and his business hating policies.

Ohhh Thus might be my opportunity to get a press pass and have the opportunity to ask the orange clown in the White House "What the Fuck is wrong with you"

If Trump does show up locally one can be sure that supporters from the LV Chamber of Commerce and the LV Tea Party will rush to the scene to kiss his regal ass.

As a member of AOPA you receive these TFR notices, usually a few days in advance. I can tell if the pres is going golfing, spending a nice weekend at Camp David or just out rallying the base. His visits to Bedminster are always a pain since it shuts down a nice chunk of airspace in eastern PA.
Since my wife is always disappointed with our presidents extracurricular activities, I do enjoy letting her know where Cheeto is golfing.

I saw that plane during it's approach, impressive to say the least. Fuck Trump and his entire inept administration!

First Bernie Sanders pays a visit, now Trump, both campaigns hit hard by the Covid-Craze.

The Covid-Craze's only political beneficiary, no show Joe, is still hunkered down in the Biden Bunker.

It is wonderful that the greatest president of our times will grace our valley with a visit! All the nutzoid libs with TDS will grace this blog with their boundless hatred and loser mentality. Trump 2020 and beyond!

Heard he was visiting the Allentown mayor, city council and school district to present the All American City award. Yerass!

Could you imagine this pandemic striking our country during the anemic Obama economy? Under President Trump our economy grew to epic proportions- Lowest unemployment rate, highest number of Americans working, record stock market highs. Even with the country and entire world shutting down for two months, the stock market is still trading higher than any time during Obama's two terms. Gasoline under $2 a gallon. No inflation. The hardships of this pandemic would be a lot worse without the Trump economy. Those who hate Trump will never credit him for cushioning the blow of this once in a century catastrophe.

It was called the Opioid Crises back then, it killed lots of young people, about 40,000 every year of the Obama administration.

I hope someone asks Trump what he's doing about the new "Asian Murder Hornets", even if only as a goof.

Of course you hate representatives of small business and the law abiding citizens of LV Tea Party, many of whom are veterans. Your comment reminds me of the way the mainstream media treated Obama. F. Chuck Todd, Chris Matthews etc. rushed to Obama to kiss his regal ass. I'd rather be with the LV Chamber or LV Tea Party people over your elitist/socialist press types any day.
