I could write an entire chapter of a novel just using that shot as a starter alone! 5 stars!

Thanks All. I found a spot to shoot this with only 2-minutes to spare, after driving around over an hour.

This is an amazing and iconic shot, especially because of what aircraft it is and what passenger it is (probably) carrying. If the POTUS is actually on board, Air Force One descending out of dark storm clouds could be an analogy for soooo many stories! Incredible!
