    This is really interesting. Col. Mark Tillman tells about what happened on 9/11 on Air Force One and then talks about the Thanksgiving Day trip to Baghdad.

    It's 22 minutes, but worth the watch. Pretty cool to get the inside scoop.

    Yeah, it's good to get the truth rather than the lies fatboy Michael Moron and his kool-aid drinking admirers tried to spread.

    It's really nice to get the real deal for a change. I have a lot more
    respect for the men that fly AF1. Thank you for posting this.

    I saw a full series on AF1 when the Col. was still in the cockpit of AF1. I think it's on Hulu. Great stories.

    I'm watching futball now, but I'll check it out when I goto mom's basement this afternoon after the game.

    Thanks for the link.

    Now that is bad ass. Glad to hear a first person account of what went down.

    Your all very welcome.

    I think my favorite part is where Bush is looking through the night vision glasses as all the guys defending AF1 and gives the subtle thumbs up to one of the guys on a fifty. That is soooo Bush.

    After that it's the part where they had three unidentified fast movers on their tail and it turned out to be the TNG F-15's coming in to protect the Pres.

    Really cool stuff.

    Very cool stories. The President of the United States served Thanksgiving dinner to soldiers abroad and left Baghdad without eating himself.

    It's not like he ran to the office to give a holiday dinner speech. He flew halfway across the globe to do this, with only a handful of people who knew about it. That was a work of logistical genius.

    That pilot deserved to be number 1, not 10 on that list. Excellent job!
