How much does a terrifying, pointless photo-op for Air Force One cost the U.S. taxpayer?
That’s according to Air Force spokeswoman Vicki Stein via Bloomberg:
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.
