I had the opportunity to sit in it two days ago, when we delivered it to an undisclosed island in the Pacific. That thing is freakin amazing.

Not only are the doors about 8 inches thick, with multi plane bullet proof, bomb proof glass. But they weigh nearly a thousand pounds each. The doors.

We dragged in his personal limo, and then two other limos for his staff, plus two SUV escort vehicles. Was an exhorbitant amount of fun. The secret service guys were cool too. Some of the ladies in the secret service were freakin' hot too. I guess to be in the secret service you either have to be female, blonde and 5'5" 120 lbs, or male, 6'4" and about 250.

Fly again wednesday, wonder where we'll go this time.

I got to sit in one a few years back, did you see all the goodies under the seat:machinegu
No, I didn't want to piss off the guys gaurding it by tearing through the president's shit. I did notice the dash had more buttons than the average keyboard. And after seeing the weight on my cargo manifest (which is classified, so we'll just say its...a lot), I am impressed.

I have an uncle that does security for an air port and he was able to check out the SUV escorts. Those things have more weapons in them than the entire Indiana National Guard. One guy's job is to ride around in full body armor with two machine guns. if trouble starts, he jumps out and starts laying down suppressing fire. :boom :machinegu :machinegu :machinegu

Yeah, shadow, I am adamgeek's brother. And my poor R1 has been all alone for three weeks now.

Kneedragger, the weight of the vehicles is classified, simply so someone can't be like, "ok, it weighs this much, we need a bomb this big", or figure out how much pushing capacity they need to run it off the road...etc...The less everyone knows the better...I guess.

Yes, rabid wombat, I really hope I get to go to australia and crew rest there on this trip. Though, if we go to indonesia, I get hostile fire...

And speaking of Uzi 9MM, I was turning in guns at the armory, and I asked the airmen working there why they had clearing procedures for the Uzi, I thought they replaced those with MP5's. He said OSI (office of special investigations) carries them as concealed weapons. Youch!
