Air Force One
On the afternoon of October 29, 2020, Air Force One landed at Tampa International Airport.
What an honor having a symbol of American Might in our home town:

Air Force One, according to federal spending records, and published reports, cost around $2 billion to build and more than $200,000 an hour to fly. The $200,000 coves everything from fuel, maintenance, engineering support, food & lodging for the pilots and crew, as well as other operational cost such as special communications equipment:






Let's take a look inside:









Air Force One... A symbol of American Might!

I just think its wrong for the American Taxpayer to pay the expenses for Trump, Obama, Bush, etc. to fly around the country campaigning and soliciting donations, which are not part of official government business.

I completely agree. At the same time the President is always on duty. He always needs the capability to carry out their duties. I wish they had to take 1/2 of the expenses for it's use out of their campaign fund.

"I guess you didn't know that he was a vice president once. " Knew that! But I still can't believe what I am seeing.
