America The White House

American Tradition of Marine One Presidential Departures

Washington DC – August 2, 2019 – Report By:  Dr. June Knight

Here’s an interesting fact about the White House – when the President leaves on Marine One, the pilot has to land the helicopter on three small circles. HE DOES IT EVERY TIME. It is the most amazing thing to watch.

A marine is on guard and opens the doors, waits for the President, then shuts the door behind them. It’s pretty amazing. The helicopter goes straight up, etc.

More interesting facts:

(Sun-Sentinel) Marine One has been a fixture of the presidency since President Dwight Eisenhower inaugurated it in 1957. The president’s helicopter – a Sikorsky VH-3D Seat King – is part of fleet of aircraft based in Quantico, Va.

More than 800 U.S. Marines supervise the operation of the Marine One fleet. They call the helicopters “white tops” because of their green and white paint scheme.

The town of Palm Beach has limited use of Marine One’s helipad at Mar-a-Lago to official business. It must be demolished when President Trump leaves office.
