When the President Comes, He Brings his Friends.
Just had a bodacious flyover by about 10% of the United States AirForce. 8 armed F-15 Eagles, an AWACS radar plane and 2 Presidential helicopters. Couldnt get the Entourage but got the Prez as he flew over Indian Point Nuclear plant.
How much does this little trip to fleet week and a tour of the lower Hudson cost?
8 F-15's, fuel, pilot pay and training ~$120million
1 Beautiful AWACS and 2 Sikorsky's ~$100million
a flight with your buds ~priceless....or hundreds of millions of dollars depending on your point of view.
