According to "military officials estimated that the mission and photo shoot, aimed at updating file photos of Air Force One, cost about $328,835 in taxpayer money."
I am uncertain as to why this was worth the money or fear that this stunt caused NYC citizens. Maybe it is just more evidence the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing.
If you need to update your file, please let me know, I would be more than willing to photoshop this picture in order to update your file for half of what was spent.
This concludes the rant. I hope everyone is having a great week. God Bless.
