    Lightbulb Air Force to Dust Off Douglas VC-118 to Become Trump's Air Force One

    WASHINGTON DC -- The Air Force has announced that in light of President Trump's latest executive order, it was going to remove the Douglas VC-118 from storage and replace the "overly complicated" 747 that until earlier this morning, adorned the name Air Force One. President Trump signed an Executive Order stating "America needs to make things simpler." This put into action comments he had made earlier in Twitter where he stated:

    "Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly. Pilots are no longer needed, but rather computer scientists from MIT. I see it all the time in many products. Always seeking to go one unnecessary step further, when often old and simpler is far better."

    The VC-118, originally President Truman's plane and the second plane designed specifically to carry the President, is equipped with many fewer automatic controls and will allow the pilots to be "fully in control" as required by the Executive Order. The plane is currently being removed from it's current location at the National Museum of the United States Air Force situated just outside of Dayton, Ohio.

    The Air Force said it expected the plane to be ready to carry President Trump by "week's end."

    The plane is reportedly capable of speeds of up to 360 mph with a range of 4,400 miles and can reach elevations as high as 31,000 feet. With the reduced cabin space, it was unclear how the media was now to travel with the President.

    That would probably be Trump's favorite part, no room for the press.

    You had to click the OP title to figure that out?!

    I admit, it was a rush job, but Trump lobbed this one out there. Had to be swung at. Sorry it doesn’t reference socialism in some way. I mean other than the poster’s name.

    Yeah sorry.

    Some of us never heard of a Douglas VC-118.

    But that is meaningless here.

    I think the Spruce Goose would be more Trump's style.

    I thought we were getting Donald a Boeing 737 Max 8. Am I misinformed?

    Trumpo would require a brain transplant before he could ever construct such informative, concise and clear sentences. If he were actually addressing the subject he would say, "Little airplane good."
