Ahmadinejads Plane Made in America and Parked at Andrews AFB
Heres something you dont see every day.
At Joint Base Andrews this morning, reporters traveling to Ohio with President Obama spotted what is in all likelihood Iranian President Mahmoud Amadinejads airplane sitting on the tarmac: an American-made Boeing 747.
The Iran Air jet was parked next to the Russian government airplane and several others that appeared to be from foreign governments. Andrews becomes a parking lot for the planes during the annual UN General Assembly since there is not enough space at JFK and other NYC area airports.
Its not the first time Ahmadinejads plane has been parked at Andrews during UNGA in 2006 we reported it was there because it was considered a high-value target.
Read that report from 2006.
Iran has an entire fleet of aging Boeing passenger planes, which they purchased when the Shah was still in power. Current US sanctions do not allow the Iranians to buy spare parts for the aircraft, meaning a lot of these passenger planes are dropping out of the sky.

So these foreigners park their planes at Andrews and somehow get up to NYC to badmouth the USA? Shouldn’t they at least pay parking fees?
Under Obama Iran parks for free while our allies pay to park.
What a great opportunity to...
Get Off My Lawn
I saw it parked there a couple of years ago when I was there. It’s an SP model...they’re going to have a hard time finding spare parts anywhere...
“What a great opportunity to...”
Can we at least flatten its tires?
Maryland al-Friq State PING!
It seems odd that an Islamic true believer would ride on an infidel produced aircraft......
I think Boeing planes are used around the world. Yes it might be difficult to purchase the parts from Boeing, but I bet there are plenty of countries and companies ready to "launder" them.
Does he have a choice? I'm racking my brain and can't come up with even one aircraft that is produced in a Muslim country. Can any FReeper name one?
The " OKHOT 72 "
" OH GOD!!...72 VIRGINS...OH GOD!!...72 VIRGINS...."
I would have thought that a China cruiser would be preferable to something from the Zionist enemy.
