So i'm new to this whole thing, just occasionally listening to ATC for fun curiosity (not a pilot or hobbyist.).  While listening on Sunday, when Air Force One was getting ready to arrive in to Bradley (Which is, I assume the reason for a TFR?) I heard this communication, between control and a helicopter violating the TFR, i heard the Helicopter say that they were "Dropping off Santa Claus".   No idea what this means.. but I thought i'd let this be my first interesting recording that i would share. Got it from the Archive here on LiveATC, i just made cuts to the interesting part.

I don't know why he wanted to fly in this situation back to his heliport. Wouldn't it be wiser in that case to just land where he was anyway and to wait until the TFR is over? In my opinion landing would also be clearing the airspace. Any other thoughts?

This close to Christmas, it no doubt had something to do with an event where Santa arrives by helicopter!!

I wonder whether it'll be the FAA, or the helicopter pilot, who gets coal in their stocking this year?
