    The United States Air Force will debut a new, light airlifter today. The service; which has seen multiple procurement disasters with large dollar projects is going small.

    The Air Force will use an old procurement law to buy several of these from an existing DOD supplier. This method was used recently as a USAF proposal to get new helicopters via a U.S. Army procurement program.

    Said the undersecretary for the USAF Erin C. Conaton, “We have actually used this new airlifter back in my days with the CIA using black funding. It was very succesful and should help the Air Force not only with the current wars we are fighting but also help refresh the depleted Air National Guard which has seen a severe downturn in airframe numbers.

    The U.S. Air Force Recruiting Command is being investigated for fraud waste and abuse for constructing a parade float,

    Rep Rangel (D-NY) was outraged that such a float could be constructed without congressional oversight. In his statement he asked:
    “How this float be built without earmarks coming to my district and my cronies?”

    NOT certified for flight into rain! Honey, it shrank the C-17!

    In response to the efforts of diversity advocates, the USAF introduces the “short transport”, for “special” aviators who have “special” needs.

    (yes, I did rip that idea off from The Onion.)

    On our tour of historic, US landmarks we see Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, constructed over a period of 21 years, on a land purchased by the Diocese of New York in 1810 for 11,000 USD. Alongside it, you can see the latest addition to the United State’s strategic airlift capability, a C-17 that required over a decade to develop at a cost of over 5.5 billion USD.

    5.5 billion just doesn’t buy you what it used to anymore.

    Oh man, too easy.. My sides hurt from laughing so hard… wait, is this Boeing’s prototype to finally replace the C-130? Ouch. Just don’t paint it yellow! That would be insult to injury.
