Look What We Bought The President!
Our tax dollars bought the next Commander-in-Chief a brand new plane! Its like a Presidential version of the Price is Right, without the price guessing and with bigger/better prizes. Its not like the Price is Right at all. I just wanted to mention the show. Anyhoo...
The new Air Force One will be a Boeing 747-8 with all of the Presidential bells and whistles needed to be command central in the sky, if necessary. The new AF1 should be delivered some time in 2017 or 2018 and will include shielding against electromagnetic pulses, amongst many other highly classified technological upgrades. In short, the President will be flying better than first class because AF1 is in a class of its own. President Palmer would be proud and I can only dream.
