Campaigner in Chief!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do we really wonder why the country is going broke?
The United States Air Force has established two new aircraft squadrons to support the administration’s travel needs during the campaign season.
The 305th and 306th Expeditionary Airlift Squadrons were activated as subordinate units of the 89th Airlift Wing on December 1.
The 305th will operate out of New Castle , DE , with 5 C-130H medium lift transport aircraft, 8 full sets of aircrew, 60 maintenance personnel, and 12 operations personnel are assigned.
The 306th will operate out of Andrews AFB, with 4 C-17 heavy lift transports, 7 full aircrew, 60 maintenance personnel, and 10 operations personnel will be assigned.
Operations for the two squadrons are to commence in April, and will run through the election. The aircraft and personnel will be released back to their original units after the election on Nov. 2.
These aircraft and personnel are being made available to the President and his administration IN ADDITION to the normal access to all of the 89th’s executive transports and the VC-25 jumbo jets usually used as Air Force One so that the President can use them for his re-election bid. All of these aircraft and personnel are being provided at
