Obama Watch

Anyone considering "doodling around" or loitering - that's sightseeing, flight-training activities, aerial photography, etc. - in the skies might want to wait until President Obama's Martha's Vineyard vacation ends. There's a 30-mile radius flight restriction in place through August 24 and an inability to steer clear of that ring could make for some very unfriendly skies: "Pilots should be very careful not to fall foul of the conditions attached to the restrictions, unless they want to see what F-15 Eagles and unmarked Blackhawk helicopters look like from up close."
