Skip to comments.From Boston to Janesville (Drudge FALSE ALARM: "Romney plane parked in Paul Ryan's hometown..."

Take note, veep watchers: Earlier today, a charter plane took off in Boston, stopped in Chicago, then flew to the tiny airport in Janesville, Wis. Janesville, of course, is the hometown of Representative Paul Ryan, a top vice-presidential contender. According to a source on the ground, the plane is still in Wisconsin.
Tomorrow morning, Mitt Romney will visit the U.S.S. Wisconsin in Norfolk, Va. For what its worth, Ryan is scheduled to be on vacation in Colorado.

This aircraft stops in Janesville, WI frequently and has for months; there's no real reason to think it has any connection to the Romney campaign.
Where are you getting the ‘false alarm’ signal?
From the fact that this aircraft visits Janesville every few days and has done so since at least April. The mere fact of it visiting Janesville and Boston within a couple days of each other is NOT evidence of a Paul Ryan pick; there is simply no evidence to suggest that it has any connection with the Romney campaign.
So I'm not *getting* the "false alarm" signal; I'm *giving* it.
We know it’s a red-herring cuz this move would be GUTSY:
Is Hair-helmet gutsy...?
I thought he already chose Fred Karger...
for what earthly reason would his plane be in Janesville every few days for months??
Guess you are the only one ‘in the know’ then. Keep up the good work Sparky.
Everything’s got to be someplace. Janesville is as good a place as any if you’ve got to be somewhere.
The real question is why this plane has been identified with Romney. Anybody know the tail number?
The only a/c from the Chicago area earlier today into Janesville, of the aircraft that flew IFR, is an SR-22. This is a 4-seater, and not likely a charter. FWIW, not much, it's N847MC. Perhaps it was VFR, in which case I can't look it up...
Ooops, forget my last post. There *IS* a jet that went from
the Chicago area into Janesville. N26SC is a Raytheon Hawker 800, and flew out of Midway.
Romney himself has plenty of business acumen. He needs someone to bring something else to the table.
N26SC is registered to SC Aviation, a Janesville, WI company that provides Charter flights to many corporations and interests. Of course it has visited Janesville many times the last few weeks. That’s where it is headquartered.
Does anyone really have a link between it and the Romney campaign?
Breitbart is reporting it and they are usually right.
"Oops," what? I was right - this airplane had nothing to do with the Ryan pick. I never said (or even implied) that Ryan wasn't the pick; just that this airplane was unrelated. There are several stories out there about how the Romney campaign kept the pick secret and how Ryan's travel was arranged, and this airplane was not involved.
