Air Force Two in Minor Incident on Long Island
Source: New York Times

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Air Force Two with Vice President Joe Biden aboard was involved in a minor accident with no injuries Wednesday morning at a Long Island airport.

A small private plane parked nearby was lifted a few feet into the air by the jet wash from Biden's plane as it taxied to take off from Francis S. Gabreski Airport, said Air Force spokeswoman Maj. Michelle Lai.

The left wing of the Piper Cub was damaged but no one was on board, Lai said. Biden's 757 took off with those on board apparently unaware of what had happened.

Biden was returning to Washington from vacation, his office said. The airport is in Westhampton Beach, N.Y.

It is clear to me that Joe needs to stick to Amtrak.

Edited on Wed Aug-11-10 06:33 PM by RandomThoughts
Had reports of fires and floods, air plane crashes. Not the best of months.

I wonder which of the stories are true.




On a side note, did anyone notice the Ozzy Ozborne pose from the Sink the Bizmark clips?

It is his famous stance, when the guy says 10 shells.

Crank It up.

3. Sounds like the Cub was parked too close to the...
taxiway. Lots of problems when you get large and small planes next to each other...or follow to closely on landing, one of the big cargo/passenger haulers.

Can't tell without a picture, but the Cub may not have been tied down.

4. an ex marine sgt once told me
that he was part of the clean up crew when dan quayle's air force 2 crashed hard on take off
he said quayle was not aboard but the plane was destroyed
i think he said it was in chicago
he said he was told to not talk about it and it did not make the news
may not be true
sometimes marines have crazy stories and you don't know what to make of them

5. Biden had better "watch his back" ...he's had Motorcade Incidents and RW/DLC is Pushing for Hillary
to REPLACE HIM. Web is abuzz with "Biden needs to go...put Hillary in as VP."

Just Google if you don't believe me.

Someone is after him..just saying...he has had so many "Incidents."
