A 747 can cruise well over 500 mph. 228 miles divided by 500 equals 27 minutes to get there and 27 minutes to return. That is 54 minutes (less than one hour for the mathematically challenged) Add in 20 minutes of taxi time and waits for clearance delivery.
That is ONE HOUR and 14 minutes. Why do intelligent people not think before believing all this BS?
Presidents have been using taxpayer planes for fund rasing for many years. It needs to be stopped.
"The driving distance from New York, New York to Washington, District of Columbia is:
228 miles /" "President Obama waves as he boards Air Force One in New York on Tuesday after attending a pair of Democratic fundraisers. Tomorrow he plans to use his executive authority to change the nation's overtime rules." "The plane that is used to carry the president, which is typically a Boeing 747, costs the Air Force $179,750 per hour to operate, according to a new Congressional Research Service report." "
New York, NY
3 hours 45 mins
Washington, DC" Now, how much was that fundraiser trip. No wonder he wants overtime. LMAO
