I cut together a few bits from the AF1 flyover last Sunday, in case anyone else is interested.

Thanks!  At 2:40, Air Force One says: "[…] and if you can just confirm that Huntsman (?) is south of the center line of 7L?" Tower replies: "Air Force One, affirmative, Huntsman (?) is just underneath the blimp at 1000."  What is Huntsman?  :-)

Huntsman is the callsign of the secret service helicopter.  He was at 1000' just under the Goodyear blimp at 2000', both staying out of the way of the arrival of Air Force 1 and its flyover.

I had assumed something like that, but my Google searches came up empty.  Thanks for the explanation!
