    Hey -- did anyone just see Marine One flying over Ashburn. I think it was indeed the President's helicopter. Wonder what he was doing out here?

    Was it one or three choppers? They travel in a pack... I think I saw something about him going to Camp David this weekend - seems like the wrong direction....

    The two copters just flew over again. It appears to be Marine One and a Chinook. This makes it three times that they have flown over our house in 90 minutes. Wonder what they are doing? Perhaps the President and First Lady are going to buy a house in the Broadlands. Hahaha!

    I saw it but doesn't the president only travel with three? I was thinking it might be the VP or a VIP in town for G8. Was interesting to see!

    They were ferrying people from Dulles to Camp David in Thurmont, Md. Pretty cool- it was taking them about 20 minutes for a round trip.

    I saw 2 of them heading NW, and then about a half hour later (could be more, or less, I didn't time it exactly) I saw them coming back traveling SE.

    Doesn't anyone in Broadlands read the news (Loudoun Times doesn't count)? The G8 summit is this weekend. They will be at Camp David this weekend.

    Yea, they flew over three times yesterday. Twice, there was two helicoptors and the third time, there was three. We were on our deck when they flew over. Pretty cool to see.
