Wisconsin Rally at Airport Where Bush Won't Land

By  | 

Air Force One will land at Outagamie County Regional Airport in Greenville and Bush will be driven to Oshkosh.

The 20-mile presidential motorcade is expected to bring rush hour traffic to a halt.

Bush visit coordinator Sarah Thilman says it would have been better to land at Wittman logistically, but the regional airport was a better place to land a 7-47.

Winnebago County Executive Jane Van De Hey says county employees had been working the Secret Service, providing maps and ground plans for a Wittman landing, but she says wind velocity, taxiways at Wittman and exits caused presidential staff to set the landing at Greenville.
