Does anybody know what plane Ted Kennedy’s body is going to fly on from BOS to Washington?
Would they give him an air force plane? Former presidents get a VC-25 (747), so I suppose he might get a C-32 (757) or at least something with United States of America painted on it. Or is the family just chartering something, in which case it would presumably be trackable on FA.
On a related note, does anyone know what equipment Obama is flying on in and out of MVY for the funeral? The runway is too short for a VC-25, but a C-32 could make it. I also saw something that said he was taking a helicopter in and out of Otis Coast Guard Air Station.
It looks like it might be a good day for plane-spotting at BOS on Saturday. Anybody in the area interested in taking pictures?
Thank you for adding 16 minutes to my total time by leaving early from MVY today. I hope you didn’t find it offensive when I climbed at 4500 fpm when I was leaving ACK this afternoon. I was cleared direct to LFV VOR which is 45 miles north of ACK to stay clear of your airplane. Once I was out of 18000 feet I was NOT cleared direct to LUCOS intersection, because you decided to leave 1.5 hours early. Next time, please give an accurate departure time to those who make a living in the summer time flying back and forth to the land of make believe. I burned an extra 75 gallons of evil jet fuel to comply. Thanks, Concerned Citizen.
