Hiding sort of yeah!! I had done some construction work on Sunset Rd a few years back when Bush visited so I had an idea of the routine.
I pulled in a parking lot about 1.5hrs before touch down. Just sat there listening to the radio. Tripod and ladder ready to go but laid down in the back. Once they closed the road, about 15mins later I could see the landing lights coming(all other air traffic stopped about 30mins beforehand). I jumped out and setup. Took pics, headed home, all in about 5mins or so.
I saw Secret Services vehicles(??) racing by well over 100mph with lights and sirens going but none of them stopped.
That's some funny stuff right there! Excellent planning. Lol! Birdman thought he was going to scare me off. I was about ready to call the cops on him!
I just kept shooting while he fired at me. I don't know how may rounds he fired off, but it was enough to know he wasn't trying to run birds off.
