Bill Clinton’s 55 Hour Flight Delay

Well, that was just to get your attention – it was actually his press plane trailing his plane to Africa that was delayed.  The Washington Post has a mildly amusing story about the press traveling with Clinton for a 4-day whirlwind trip through Africa and the delays suffered by all.  Short version?  55 hour delay at Newark, an electrical fire, a replacement Boeing 707, and Ted Danson flying Ethiopian Airlines from Ethiopia to Rwanda.  I don’t know why the site of Danson on that plane cracks me up.  It also begs the question of what the hell he was doing there.  I can’t answer that.  Maybe a very special Becker.

  1. I didn’t think that the 707 was still allowed to operate in the USA. The only commercial carrier I’m aware of is Saha Air, in Iran, and I doubt that plane came over to help them out.

    Sounds like a fun trip otherwise. :)
