8. Great pic
But I don't believe that is Cheney's plane. According to AFP:

A US-led coalition jet flies over Bagram Air Base. Security fears led US Vice President Dick Cheney to exchange his Air Force Two suite for a high-tech trailer chained to the floor of a cavernous military plane for his visits to Pakistan and Afghanistan.(AFP/Shah Marai)


This is Cheney's plane (Air Force Two):

9. He uses a C17 when traveling to the ME
High-tech trailer? It's an Airsteam, blogslut.

This is the Airstream that was parked in the bay of the C-17 which carried Cheney into war zones. Inside, its gray-leather seating and paneled walls provided a comfortable shelter within the loud bay of the transport jet. Cheney spent a moment in here speaking with reporters about the base bombing.

10. Yes, but
Edited on Wed Feb-28-07 07:35 PM by blogslut
The Airstream is INSIDE an Air Force jet. The fascade of that plane you posted is the the U.S. Air Force's choice, not Cheney's.

EDIT: As for the descriptor -high tech trailer- that is the AFP's. Not mine. I would prefer they call it portable evil lair. :)

12. Looks more like high-tech prisoner transport
Delivering its criminal, arrogant, draft-dodging cargo to the International Criminal Court in the Netherlands. At least that's what it looks like to me.

11. I'm surprised these nimrods don't have a Spirit of Ronald Reagan plane yet.
Maybe, I shouldn't give them any ideas. At least, Strom Thurmond surved in one of the Airborne units in WWII.

14. Spirit of Vlad Drakul on the outside of the coffin that's inside the trailer, inside the plane?
This is getting a bit like the kids' song about the Hole in the Bottom of the Sea ;)

15. Sec. of Defense Gates.....
arrived in Baghdad for his first surprise visit on this same plane.

I thought :wtf:when Gates exited the plane and you could read 'The Spirit of Strom Thurmond' over the door.
