so, tell me, why else would they stop in Scotland, and stay in that resort, and help keep the nearest airport from closing down from lack of business, on their way to somewhere in the Middle East, if Trump did not want them to do so? Do you deny they have flown into that airport and stayed at Trump's resort?

Are you that brainwashed? Are you a Russian bot? Answer the second question first....

Already been answered. The USAF has been flying there since 2015.


Somebody doesnt understand science, why do you think a plane would fly a “great circle” route by going north first on an intercontinental flight rather than straight shot west?

Look up geodesic flight, or “the great circle route”


You arent well traveled are you?


If you cant figure it out with the clues given, id be happy to include visual aides next post.

you bring up an interesting point, besides the one on top of your head, but, as usual, you do not have your facts straight. It is true that the USAF has used that airport for some time. But, according to this article from the NY Post, owned by the lying pig Rupert Murdoch, the number of stops has increased exponentially since trump assumed office, and I do mean assumed. from the article-

President Trump’s organization entered into a business partnership in 2014 with a Scottish airport that recently directed a United States Air Force Crew to an overnight stay at one of Trump’s resorts — something the president denied any involvement in, according to a New York Times report.

Under the 2014 arrangement, the Trump Organization agreed to try to boost private and commercial air traffic to Glasgow Prestwick Airport in exchange for helping to send flight crews to the Trump-owned Turnberry resort, according to documents obtained by the paper.

To help obtain the extra business, Turnberry — which is 20 miles outside the airport — was added to an existing list of hotels that Glasgow Prestwick would normally book for arriving crews, the documents revealed.

“As a list of hotels that we use for our business, being honest, Turnberry was always last on the list, based on price,” Jules Matteoni, a manager at Glasgow Prestwick, wrote in June 2015 to executives at Trump Turnberry.

“Yesterday’s proposal places Turnberry in a favorable position and gives us food for thought in our placement of crews moving forward.”
On Monday, the airport confirmed to the Times the arrangement with Turnberry.

“We provide a full handling service for customers and routinely arrange overnight accommodation for visiting aircrew when requested,” the Prestwick airport said in a statement. “We use over a dozen local hotels, including Trump Turnberry, which accounts for a small percentage of the total hotel bookings we make.”

Since Trump took office, the partnership has raised some eyebrows — especially since a seven-member United States Air Force crew who flew into Glasgow Prestwick in March ended up staying at Turnberry.

Under that existing arrangement, American military planes refuel at the Scottish airport, which helps arrange local overnight stays for the arriving crews.
Air Force trips to the airport, however, have increased each year Trump has been in office, the Times says.

In 2017, 180 of the American military planes landed at Prestwick. So far this year, 259 of them have stopped the airport, according to the Times.

Tl:dr


Stopped at your first bullshit lie.


The usaf increased flights to there yes, to relieve other places like ramstien, the air field is along the “great circle” planes fly to shorten the flights.


Trump had nothing to do with that.


Not moving forward until you concede this point, sorry not sorry.

It's a mere 300 miles south to Lakenheath/Mildenhall in England, and maybe 600 east to Germany. If you're talking great circles, it's nothing. Those places are US bases with cheap fuel, and they don't have a partnership with Trump organisation, with a reciprocal arrangement for discounted Trump accommodation.

So you are saying trump is getting kickbacks from the gas station? hahahahhaahhaaaaa



Byw already addressed, ramstien is over crowded, as is lakenheath, this fueling station, which was used before trump, is the most cost effective and the usaf made these decisions, not trump himself. Omg.

"fuel that would be cheaper if purchased at a U.S. military base "

Is this suggesting that I could spend less of fuel if I bought a gas station?

Backpeddling, numerous people and the article suggest the fuel was prt of it.


If these aircrew members got 5 star digs at allowed rates, why the left wants to shit all over them to get trump is beyond me.


5 fucking people you all are having a hissy fit over.

Nobody here has a problem with soldiers following orders.

Why do right-wingnuts support our troops being given illegal orders intended to personally enrich the Commander in Chief? They certainly wouldn't support a Democratic President doing this, but then, they are hypocrites, aren't they?

If you have any knowledge of the story, then you know that this airport is in receivership due to being unprofitable, and that Trump needs this airport to remain open in order to provide access to his resort. Nobody claimed that he was getting cash kickbacks for fuel sales at the airport. Don't pretend to be so stupid.
