Obama campaign (plane) flies into trouble

The campaign seems to still be on track, but their plane did have some trouble last night. After leaving Las Vegas from a campaign visit the plane arrived at Chicago’s Midway airport and clipped the wing of a parked plane, causing minor damage to both aircraft.

The part about this that I find most strange is that the flightaware.com website which generally can be used to track just about any flight that files a flight plan doesn’t seem to have a record of a flight leaving Las Vegas and arriving at Midway around 2:30 Saturday morning. I’m calling it a conspiracy. I’m not sure who is in on it, but it is definitely a conspiracy. Or the secret service has decided to not list his flights.

  1. By the way, my favorite trip on that page is the four-minute flight from Dulles to DCA on 28 Jan. Awesome.

  2. Thanks for finding/sharing this. It definitely is fun to watch them hop around the country 🙂
