It was a breath of fresh air to hear the soon to be Speaker of the House tell us that he will continue to fly coach class on commercial aircraft when returning to his home district. Finally, someone who identifies with us "common folk". Official records show that Nancy Pelosi burned $ 28,000 each time she flew an Air Force GV from Washington, DC to California, and that in a period of just 18 months blew through over $ 2,000,000! It is clear, even to the casual observer, that Speaker Pelosi thinks she is entitled to use our money to keep her comfortable and away from the "common folk" when traveling around the world. With such arrogance is it any wonder our country is in trouble? I vote for some fresh air in Congress and an end to all waste, no matter how insignificant any one item may be. Anyone else? Until next time keep your wings straight and level Hersch! JetAviator7 ps: Don't forget to sign up for our newsletter "All Things Aviation" here!
