– Wednesday, July 25 after the Boeing 747 departed Seattle’s Boeing Field and flew low, directly over Yelm as the President got a commanding tour & view of Mt. Rainier’s west face before turning southeast enroute to his next stop, New Orleans.

The President was in the Seattle area for a fundraising visit.
