Yeah - that's the point. He's the Transport Minister - there's no correlation with him knowing anything about transport... I mean John Prescott was the transport minister at one point - need I say more...?

Just because a person is "in charge" and can say things like "Mission Accomplished" does NOT mean he knows everything.
Trust me, education experts in the state of California have spent their entire careers getting as far away from children as they possibly, so they can become "experts" on children. There are more adminstrators in education than there are teachers, yet somehow they are supposed to be smarter than teachers and know what works in a classroom.
It sounds like this person hasn't flown in quite a while, and has no idea how airports function. I wouldn't be surprised if he showed up for his flight ten minutes before take-off and was thoroughly surprised to not be let on board.

Aren't we taking the minister's statement a little bit too literally here?
Just because he said "three" types of aircraft, I strongly suspect he was simply illustrating a point. If you're trying to determine exactly what types he meant, then I'd argue that you're probably unable to see the forest for the trees.
