Wonder what the USAF will do in future years when the newly ordered VC-25s reach their end of life. I remember reading that the AF wants the president’s plane to be a four holer. Seems by then neither Boeing or Airbus will be building 4 engine jets. But maybe by that time there will be more advanced...Jump to post

They have all day Friday (still noon there) till 1630 before shabbat. Orthodox people will stay in hotel till 1730 Saturday.

Return flight to TLV cancelled.

how (not) serious could it have been if they took the time to return to YYZ?
if it was life threatening would they not have landed in cuba?
and if very serious would they not have landed somewhere in Florida?
what are the customs and immigration issues if they had landed somewhere else??
