VIDEO: President Obama, Air Force One Land At LB Airport

Right around 3:00pm today, Air Force One flew into Long Beach Airport with President Obama aboard as he begins his stay in California.  Roughly one hundred spectators lined the airport to catch a glimpse of the massive aircraft – which turned out to be easy as the ear-splitting roar of the 747 touched down.

The President then boarded a helicopter transport that could be seen departing the Airport and heading south.
