    In yesterday's Amarillo Globe News, the front page article stated that BHO was getting 2 new MV22 Osprey planes for his use. They are built here in Amarillo by Bell Helicopter. The article said that they will replace the CH-46E helicopters being used now. The Ospreys will not carry the president, as he will still ride in Marine One. The Ospreys will be used for BHO's logistical staff, VIP's, and other passengers. The planes cost around $65 million each. Well, at least his movie projectionist and dog trainer will arrive at Camp David safely.LOL.

    The downwash created by the tilt-rotor's engines is something the white house lawn landing site would have a problem with. The most likely reason the Presidents aircraft is not being upgraded.

    I think they are building a new Marine One here in Amarillo. I don't think this president will see it though.

    They would not put any President in one of those things. They aren't safe.
