JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Action News is first in line to be escorted onto the Tarmac for President Barack Obama's visit later today.
As you would imagine, security is tight at the airport this morning. Media crews have to wait at the staging area, located a mile or so from the runways at SheltAir Aviation Services.
In about 30 minutes, our satellite truck will be escorted with the rest of the station live trucks onto the Tarmac for set-up. We have to make sure all our cameras and gear are inside for the secret service and security dogs to sweep and check prior to Mr. Obama's plane landing.
Then, it's time to wait. The media check-in is at noon at SheltAir. We will be shuttled and escorted to our satellite trucks shortly thereafter.
Stick with Action News. We will keep you covered every step of the way!
