Another day, another milestone: President Obama's 1,000th trip aboard Air Force One.
The president hit the millennial mark with Wednesday's trip to New York, according to Mark Knoller of CBS News, who keeps meticulous White House records.
Obama's airplane pace is behind that of predecessor George W. Bush, who took 1,675 flights on Air Force One during his eight years in office, Knoller reports.
The current president is in New York for two days as he delivers an infrastructure speech, headlines a pair of Democratic fundraisers, and helps dedicate the new 9/11 museum.
Air Force One flight number 1,001, back to Washington, D.C., comes on Thursday.
