Jet in restricted area

From the ramp at Titusville, FL airport, we had just watched the space shuttle with John Glenn aboard launch. While climbing out from Titusville, I saw a large jet (maybe a 747) no more than two miles away, flying into the restricted airspace over Merritt Island toward the space shuttle runway. I thought, "What is that airplane doing there?" Then I noticed the markings on the jet. It was Air Force One. I guess some people fly wherever they want!
