I’m not sure this is correct. This aircraft is in the US Air Force Museum on display and has been for a very long time. According to the museum, it is the only VC-121E built and was President Dwight Eisenhower’s personal airplane between 1954 and 1961. I’ve been on board a couple of times.
I also think you are correct. These stories are designed to produce emotion, not display fact.
Unfortunatley for both of you your reading comprehension, or lack there of, is on display. Thanks for your assesment MacPappy. You have now shown us the great efforts you go through to back anyone opposing an article posted by The Blaze. Certainly you are backed by the facts and not just trying to spew your bias to invoke emotion.
The article implicitly states that the aircraft you have posted the link for is in fact in the museum you have stated.
The aircraft in the article that is needing restorations was the plane used prior to that of the one listed in your posting.
No, I have seen this aircraft with my own eyes. It sits in the open in Tucson at Pima air Museum. So does Kennedy's Air Force One and another one that Nixon used, I think? I have pictures of the Columbine. They also have a Blackbird and assorted aircraft. It's a cool place. You can literally walk under a B-52 and look into the bomb bay.
Reading the article you gave the link to says Columbine 3 this article on theblaze says Columbine 2. Don't know if there is a typo but just sayin.

Here are the NRA ratings of the 16 Republicans who voted with Feinstein, Schumer and Reid to advance Obama’s gun control bill:
Lamar Alexander (Tenn.) – NRA A rated
Kelly Ayotte (N.H.) – NRA A rated
Richard Burr (N.C.) – NRA A rated
… Saxby Chambliss (Ga.) – NRA A rated
Tom Coburn (Okla.) – NRA A rated
Susan Collins (Maine) – NRA B+ rated
Bob Corker (Tenn.) – NRA A rated
Jeff Flake (Ariz.) – NRA A rated
Lindsey Graham (S.C.) – NRA A rated
Dean Heller (Nev.) – NRA A rated
John Hoeven (N.D.) – NRA A rated
Johnny Isakson (Ga.) – NRA A rated
Mark Kirk (Ill.) – NRA D rated
John McCain (Ariz.) – NRA B+ rated
Pat Toomey (Pa.) – NRA A rated
Roger Wicker (Miss.) – NRA A+ rated
All are now F's. The NRA needs to rescind any of their memberships.
I know a Senator from SC not getting my vote.
Seems some of those A+ and A rating need to be reviewed by the NRA

“Well, you know, my shotgun will do better for you than your AR-15, because you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.”
What a flippin moron. One of the very basic rules for firearm safety is make sure of your target. But not according to Uncle Joe, nope, just blast away through the closed door. Of course it could be your husband, wife child, dog, or cat on the other side of the door…but what the eff? As an NRA certified instructor in several different fields, and as someone who simply posesses a bit of commom sense, this suggestion is insanity.

I call Bull! This man was convicted of a misdemeanor in 1968 and paid a $109 fine. 45 years later the state has reclassified the crine as a felony. Because the Federal Government is now saying the NEW law is a felony, this man cannot own a firearm. Now, tell me again how the Federal Government is not trying to disarm us. And what’s that little thing called the Constitution say about being prohibited from passing and applying ex post facto laws (clausae 3 of Article I, Section 9)?
Thank You Colin for showing all these people that are ate up with white guilt what the future holds for Allen West and Herman Cain. If you think i am wrong it’s because you think these guy are great conservative’s, well i am sure you thought the same thing about Colin P. 20 years ago.

Umm…maybe he should publish a list of all of New York’s felons. But I suppose he would think that it would be an invasion of their privacy. Or maybew he should publish a list of all of New York’s ILLEGAL gun owners. Oh…wait!

Seems pretty specific, talks about persions, bounties, and supressing rebellion. Also specifically states these costs must be authorized by law. Laws are not simply deemed to be in effect b y the executive branch. Of course, these people have shown a complete disregard for the Constitution in any case, so I wouldn’t doubt that he does it.
Section 4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

I understand trhat people have strong feelings. I myself have very strong feeling concedrning the w2nd Amendment. All I can ask of you is that you personally come to pry my gun from my cold dead fingers. Works for me.

This is the same moron that was concerned that if more marines were stationed on Guam the island would capsize.

The artist, Michael D’Antuono told Fox News that his “First Amendment rights should override someone’s hurt feelings.”
I couldn’t agree more. I want the college to put up a religous display celebrating Jesus Christ over the holidays. It’s only fair.

“$440 million more than you guys wanted to provide. And the answer is that you damn didn’t provide it! You REDUCED what the administration asked for to protect these people.”
Budget yeah that's good. The toothfairy to blame for biddens teeth next. What a joke.

I’m going to go waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out on a limb here and predict that people will just go to a different county to buy their guns and ammo and Cook County will see a reduction in those taxes. What a bunch of morons.

So-called lisults to Islam wouldn’t be “starting to have implications that clearly affect international peace and security” if Muslims would stop being such thin skinned ********. Just sayin…
He won't allow insults to Islam? Is it an insult to Islam when one muslim straps a bomb on his back and infiltrates a fellow muslim's funeral procession, detonates it and kills women, children, young and old? Is that more palatable to other muslims than a film trailer or a cartoon? A mirror reveals a lot of flaws. Time Mr. Brotherhood examines his own self and does not try to tell Americans how to navigate life.

Nothing can be further from the truth than Gov. Romney’s ridiculous remarks that nearly half of American people do not pay federal income taxes…” Well guess what bubba:
