View Full Version : Aircraft tail registration....

08-09-2009, 07:32 AM
A "former associate" whose politics I definitely disagree with, sends me numerous politically incorrect "jokes"...and other material...which I have politely suggested that I do not care to read.
The latest was a photo of Air Force one with an altered tail number.
Out of curiosity I decided to check and see if such a tail identification number actually existed...and this is what my research found.....it probably slipped unnoticed by the PC crowd, much as sometimes license plates do...

Thanks, Chuck - I got that email too, from a friend whose politics are not mine. I'll send him your findings.

Unfortunately....I have two such "friends" that have the same political views. ...and one is a transplanted Canadian and I definitely don't understand his rationale for his politics. I do work with his son, whose politics seem buried somewhere, so I try to be quiet and polite.

We have a small but vocal minority that would like to re-make Canada in the USA's image. It's mostly concentrated in Alberta, that being the only province that was predominantly settled by people from the USA, but they are elsewhere as well. They sometimes become disgruntled and move to the States, a resort I strongly encourage. :D
