Is the Bush farm close to AMA?
This Airbus is usually used to carrying German state officials - just guessing.

AMA is in the Texas Panhandle, in the northwest part of the state. Bush's ranch at Crawford, Texas is close to Waco, Texas (ACT and CNW airports), and is in the central part of the state.

These birds (the Luftwaffe, not Lufthansa) A310's are frequent visitors to ELP...ferrying German troops to Fort Bliss for training at McGregor Range.

That is the German Air Force One. Shame on you Shannon  Wink
But it probably brought Luftwaffe Troops to the Air Base. Our plane is not only used to fly politicians around.
