I was the photographer that got the photos of the president on the ground in Marlborough that were carried by the news and were put in Marlborough's time capsule last year. It's unfortunate that a lawsuit is needed- that runway was designed for lightweight single engine planes, not armored ground vehicles and military choppers.
