Saw this sitting at Yellowstone Regional Airport on my way to clean rooms this morning. At first I thought one of the carriers had redesigned their plane, but then I got to thinking something was just too different.
I pulled over, got out of the car and went right up to the fence. Upon examination of the plane markings, at the top of the cabin, I could read United States of America. The blue line across the bottom completed the picture of a miniature Air Force One. I couldn’t help but wonder who was in town. One of our D.C. delegates? The V.P.? A cabinet officer? Surely, this was not Nancy Pelosi’s transport. It seemed far too small to be for her.
I proceeded on to the motel. We were swamped last night and thus there were many rooms to clean for tonight’s guests. Some men in uniform had gathered in the lobby, awaiting a fax. I asked if they had a mini Air Force One sitting at the airport. Sure did! It was such an honor to have military folks staying with us that I completely forgot about asking if they were the only ones on the flight.
