Lucky few get rare inside look inside Air Force One
Part of the excitement of President Obama's visit was the chance to see Air Force One, so on Tuesday, a select few got to be on the tarmac as the president touched down. But an even smaller group got an even bigger opportunity - and that's a rare tour of the inside of Air Force One. Megan Cruz has more.

COLONIE, N.Y. -- "Are you going to brag about this to all your friends?" asked the YNN reporter.
"Yea!" said Daniel Battista, 7.
The reporter then asked, "What are you going to tell them?"
"That I got to go on the plane and meet the president," he said.
You guessed it - THE plane, or Air Force One. Daniel and his family were a lucky few who got an inside look at President Obama's White House with wings.
"I hope it's something they always remember," said Daniel's mom, Robin. "It's quite an experience, to see that you can run the country from up in the air if need be."
"We got to see the president's bathroom," said Daniel's sister, Julia.
YNN wanted the special tour as well, but you needed to know someone. And the Battista family did.
"Uncle Danny!" said Daniel's sister Olivia.
"My son is Daniel Jacobs, born and raised in Kingston, New York. Chief of presidential security on Air Force One."
They say the rare opportunity to tour the plane and meet the staff was a moment of pride for the family that the soggy weather couldn't spoil.
"No, I like the rain," said Julia. "I think it's cool because it just adds to it. It makes it more memorable."
