Funny how the Republicans have a 737 and an E190. Yet good ole Obama has to get the fuel efficient B757 to take him places..... :) Plus Palin probably does not even want that plane to be honest!

Looks like a jetBlue aircraft, but it is probably flown by pilots from a charter company...
Who knows. They have been having a hard time as well. Talking to a guy in HPN it would not surprise me if they were jetblue pilots on lease. This way their plane is being used and they can have a couple pilots as well get used. :) Just my two cents.

The president of the United States is flying an italian chopper so what's the point?
The Kestrel is designed by the Italians but, it is built under license by Lockheed-Martin. So, it is American made. Wiki is a great thing.

Only the test aircraft are foreign built and have been modified by Lockheed. The aircraft that will go into service will be built in the U.S. As of now he's only flying in Boeing and Sikorsky products.
