Thank you, I had thought the story went something like that.
The complaint was that timing was critical, and TBirds do not routinely carry extra fuel. For performance, my guess is, they carry minimum fuel,
timed out to the minutes.
Apparently the Secret Service was, predictably, controlling all traffic at the field, which is just what they did when Obama came to my home
Anyway SS made the birds hold out at some fix, which they did, bingo fuel already.
One ship lost and photographed, some say that another ship flamed out on the ground.
And so it goes, arguments and complaints within the military, LOL. A few people do actually know the truth.
Whatever the politics, the pilot did a helluva job, riding that plane so close to empty.
