For the Junkies

Political and Aviation junkies, that is:


A photojournal of President Obama's first flight in Marine One and Air Force One.

Question: the dorky "Air Force One" flight jacket that POTUS wears -- is that a relatively new affectation? Bush wore it all the time, but I don't remember Clinton wearing it. But maybe he did and it just never got as much press.

Update: I guess not. Here's a US News & World Report photoessay showing Reagan and Carter with what look like the same flight jackets (though not being worn at the moment).

Clinton was pretty chubby and probably did not look good in it.
