    I am sure SPECOPs would love to have them and just replace some of the older C-130s with them. They probably even get better gas mileage and would be a larger even more stable platform for AC-130 type of aircraft. You know the ones that kill Obama’s friends.

      Typical Air Farce. They want ALL the toys rather than sticking to THEIR missions. They want everyone else’s too. Explains the influx of gays are concentrated in the Air Force.

      If you drive by Davis Monthan AFB, you can see hundreds of aircraft lined up like good little soldiers as far as the eye can see. Look carefully and you can also decipher the various military markings on them; U.S.Army, Marines, Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard. Everything from light observation planes to B-52’s and everything in between. About the only thing I have not seen is a B-2 or an F-117 Nighthawk.

    Air Force One should also be in Moth balls ,, We can take Obama to Prison in a Train!!

        I wonder how Benedict Arnold went to be hung or firing squad ,, If it is a traitor I do not care if he has to crawl ,, We have left this man get away with murder and just about any thing ,, but it is time for him to Pay the Price for TREASON!!

        I kind of think he escaped to Canada. Just saying.

    This is a capable little transport. It uses the engines and flight deck from the C-130J so there is some commonality in key areas. It only makes ObamaSense (a technical term for hysterical stupidity) to do something like this.

    Too bad we cant send oblamo to the Boneyard!!!!

        Parody of David Rubio’s comment above.

    WHY THE HELL AREN’T THEY GOING TO THE FOREST SERVICE TO FIGHT FIRES ? IF WE ARE GOING TO KEEP THEM IN THE BONEYARD WE NEED TO ASSIGN OBAM-ASS , REID , AND PELOZI TO GUARD THEM FOR LIFE .

  • wfwilson6

    They are much cheaper to fly than the Air Force One Boeing 747s, so require the president to use the ITALIAN built C-27s as Air Force One, with NO modifications since the gov’t is shut down. And, —why did we have Italy build them???

    • WILDCATF4F

      Italy was the assembly point so they would be CHEAP!, as is most anything built in some other Country.

    For those that are looking for a good plane, for a fair price, now is the time, that boneyard is FULL of every type and size of Aircraft you might be in need of, NOT that it will help with getting the U.S. Govt. back up and running, as the price will go through more agencies than you might give thought to.

      Just one small problem about the “boneyard and price”. Those aircraft are not for sale. Many are used for spare parts. Others can be upgraded and flyable within 72 hours. Some are so dilapidated that they will be scrapped at a facility next to D-M AFB. BUT, they ALL belong to the government, (read obumass here). Those few that are sold are sold to foreign countries for their Air Forces.

      • WILDCATF4F

        Donald Trump bought his Aircraft from that very boneyard for a very low price, then spent just a LOW cost to upgrade it to full modern standards, If you have the $ you can do the same!.

    Anyone catch the ITALIAN built?…. Now JAL announces they are buying the AirBus. Wont be long and we will be out of the aerospace business in this country.

    • KC135TopBoom

      Actually, the C-27J is a great airplane. The USAF ordered them, then decided to buy more C-130Js, making these small airlifters redundant. The US Army wants them, but the USAF won’t let the Army have them. They are planning on giving some of them to the US Coast Guard.

  • VanceJ

    More waste, when will it end ? then we have to barrow to cover the cost of these idiot things.
