because its fairly certain they didnt spend 300k on JP-8

That includes $300,658 for the larger plane, which flew a three-hour mission, and about $28,178 for the F-16 jets, which flew 1.8 hours each, Stein said in an e-mailed statement.

The total includes fuel used in flight, fuel used to power ground equipment used to prepare the aircraft, and ground maintenance, Stein said.

AF1 pilots are required to have so many hours a month anyways and this 3 hour flight was just booked as some of their flight time. *****ing about the money spent doesn't make a whole lot of sense when it would have been spent anyways on required flight hours.

Photoshoot is just a lame cover story, we all know the real mission was to perform a low altitude chemtrail dispersal.

this wasn't just criminal stupidity.

Quote:
In a memo obtained by CBS 2 HD, the Federal Aviation Administration's James Johnston said the agency was aware of "the possibility of public concern regarding DOD (Department of Defense) aircraft flying at low altitudes" in an around New York City. But they demanded total secrecy from the NYPD, the Secret Service, the FBI and even the mayor's office and threatened federal sanctions if the secret got out.

the only thing that makes the remotest sort of sense is that its against policy to publicly comment on where air force 1 aircraft (okay, by that i mean the vc-25s that are possible to be af1 at any given moment) are going to be for safety reasons

still retarded but maybe slightly less so looking from a short sighted ITS REGULATIONS type of bureaucratic mindset

well regardless of whether they publicly comment on where it is, everybody was going to be looking at it, and at least a few people would be able to identify it. From the standpoint of not wanting anyone to know about its flight plan, ie. where it launches from and when, there is no problem in telling the public that air force one will be flying around manhattan without releasing data on its exact flight plan.

300K is not "half a mill".

Also the Air Force tried (in vain) to explain how flying ops work and that the hours would have been flown on some other mission if not this one.

100% of that cost was budgeted and approved a long time ago.

It's generally good OPSEC to not announce your intentions (particularly on classified missions) to the general public well in advance. AF1 would be a high-value target for any enemy of the United States, regardless of who's on board. It's heavily guarded, and with good reason.

It doesn't matter how little it is. Add up 264,000 small $300k expenditures and suddenly it isn't so little anymore. Don't ****ing waste money, regardless of how little it is.
