It doesn't look as plush inside as I would have thought. Rather conservative, actually.

Those leather seats look pretty comfy.

But get a load of the other articles on that site: the list is at the bottom of this image...

Wasn't this Dick Cheney's Airstream a few weeks ago?

Here's yet another fine piece of journalistic excellence from that esteemed British "news" organization: Fighter jet hits UFO | Metro.co.uk

Gives you the warm and fuzzies that the "press" is watching out for us, doesn't it?

Wait a minute, now I get the connection. American politicians' wives and (gasp!) Aliens!

Is it possible that British newpapers are worse than ours?

Didn't I see this as an episode of Dr. Who?

At only 8,000 British pounds each, I'll take two.

I agree... and actually, it looks more like something a mid-level gov't manager would travel in... maybe captain & below...

As far as the 1st Lady or senior leader, that sucker would be pimped out to the max... heck, NASA's looks better. Shoot, stock Airstreams look better. If that's the best the AF can do, I'd fire the designer.

The rest of the articles in the paper pretty much indicate the veracity of their claims...

If you read the article, it's like they are using them as makeup trailers for Travelling Important Leaders. I agree with another post: 8,000? Please send me a few of those!!

Can't wait to read the article "'Killer' Toad Survives After Being Eaten By Dog"

You might remember it was a British tabloid that first broke the headline, "Dingos Ate My Baby"!
