G20 Toronto- Obama’s flying motorcade

The G20 summit was held in Toronto June 26-27,2010. Marine One is the call sign of any United States Marine Corps aircraft carrying the President of the United States. It usually denotes a helicopter operated by the HMX-1 “Nighthawks” squadron, either the large VH-3D Sea King or the newer, smaller VH-60N “WhiteHawk”. The use of five heilcopters in the presidential motorcade is used to increase the saftey of the president as the president can be aboard any of the five helicopters.
