Looks like Obama is in town

Last night leaving Costco 2 Chinooks flew over our heads low
I mentioned to Connie that the president generally flies with 5 helicopters, and just to the north there went 3 more
I saw one of them was a chinook, the other I am not sure and the final looked like this



although in the distance I thought the bottom looked blue

In any case I haven't seen them but something military has been zipping back and forth across the sky. I say military because it's no passenger jet screaming by and making all the hairs on my arm stand up.

Right before I started writing this 2 more chinooks just went directly over my house and 600-800 ft.. very low, felt like my building shook.

Someone on FB posted they saw AF1 at O'Hare yesterday as well. He is on vacation at his house I think, read it in the paper.

Seriously how pimp is that. He not only travels with 5 helicopters and a 747 but he also rolls with fighter jets.

And almost all the helicopters had 2 rotors. That's like flying with twice as many.

Our president is baller. I bet jay z and puff daddy just look at that shit and go "damn"

Kinda makes the rapper with 5 humvees look homeless doesn't it

according to chacha the two AF1's cost 650 million dollars (that sounds really low)

Chinooks are around 35 million a piece

I dont think they got these - but insanity
400m$ each for marine one (oh and they ordered 28 of them)


Let's not even get into fuel costs.. Probably a couple hundred thousand per trip

I am pretty sure for just the above costs you could buy every SV ever made + all the Gladius's and toss in every blue and white gixxer ever produced.

Wow.

We're rich!

Last edited by iamnotgreg; 05-28-2010 at 11:09 AM. Reason: don't bother correcting the plural of gladius. nobody ever bought more than one - so i dont think there is a proper plural ca
