The FAA's Donn Walker confirmed what we had heard. President
Bush was in California Friday, scooping up some cash; that, of
course, meant that normal flying had to follow some additional
rules. those rules, interestingly enough, are published in
NOtice(s) To AirMen (NOTAMs).
Walker confirmed: "We had a couple busted TFRs. On Friday, we
had two TFRs related to the President's visit. The first was Friday
morning through early afternoon, near San Francisco; Then, from
mid-afternoon to around 9PM, we had another one here. There were
some violations of both; two in the San Francisco area; five near
If you're on this list, please remember to tell your friends who
