Ed Force One - MTY and TLC

I flew the rowdy bunch into Monterrey on February 29th. During our approach, the crew greeted the MTY tower with a few seconds of Wasted Years... and asking them "Do you like that?" (Somewhere back in time of about 9:20 in the clip below.)

After they played in Monterrey, I flew them all down to TLC outside of Mexico City. Some folks didn’t think that was funny as they waited outside the fences at MEX (the other more famous airport) to see me. LOL! I still can't stop laughing about it.

Ed Force One - LAS

My last US stop for a while was in Vegas. You know what they say what they say about Vegas... well an unruly bunch didn’t want to “stay in Vegas” so we gave them a ride on our way to Mexico. In fact, I treated them like kings.

Ed Force One - TUL

We departed FLL on February 25th and flew to Tulsa. This was my Bruce and the rest of the band's first visit there in almost 30 years.

Ed Force One - FLL

10 hours after leaving CWL I landed in FLL on a cloudy afternoon. For a city used to seeing many inbound and outbound flights, for some reason I created a stir. Traffic was snarled on I-95 as onlookers tried to get a glimpse of me. I definitely hoped that flying into the land of frivolous lawsuits I wouldn’t be blamed for traffic accidents.

Ed Force One - CWL

I was born on February 17th 2016 and delivered to CWL as ABD012P. My new masters quickly re-named me Alpha Bravo Delta 666 - Ed Force One for short! February 19th was my Maiden flight with my new master as we headed out to FLL.
