Are they wasting the $ on a decoy second plane?

He wouldn't get one if he had waited a few hours to fly as ex-president. And what is the point? If anything happened then Pence would be sworn in for an hour or two, and then Biden is inaugurated.
I know, it is probably protocol.
And at this point I am just happy to see him slinking back to his lair at Mar-a-Lago. Let him get back to his more minor lifetime baseline of illegal antics, such as violating a city ordinance by making it his residence.
But for one the last times with the orange Popsicle as PINO, think about how Fox would be freaking out at the cost if a Dem required a second decoy plane in the last hours of their presidency because they were sulking and left DC "early"?

1. He's still president so probably.

And please, they'd be too busy screaming about the breach of protocol for not attending the inauguration to bother with plane costs. Though to be fair the breach of protocol and tradition is something worthy of screaming about, so that would be a rare bit of correctness from Fox.

3. I don't see one. Just 28000

I'm surprised he got a VC-25. One of the smaller planes would have worked every bit as well.

5. De nada. Track Air Force One here:

Sun Sep 13, 2020: Trump's schedule for Sunday, September 13, 2020

{much snippage}

Track Air Force One here {big hat tip to the other DUers who have helped me with this information}:

Start here and go to Joint Base Andrews:

https://globe.adsbexchange.com/

Click on the "U" in the upper right hand corner to clear the screen of all flights other than those of military aircraft.

The trip from the White House to JB Andrews is often accompanied by a Park Police helicopter. Today it's this one:

https://globe.adsbexchange.com/?icao=a1dffb

Quite often, Air Force One is this plane:

https://tar1090.adsbexchange.com/?icao=adfdf8

or this plane:

https://tar1090.adsbexchange.com/?icao=adfdf9

Sometimes he'll be on a 757 instead of a VC-25, aka 747-200

https://globe.adsbexchange.com/?icao=ae4ae6

It might be this 757 as well:

https://globe.adsbexchange.com/?icao=ae4ae8

This is yet another 757:

https://globe.adsbexchange.com/?icao=adfeb7

This 757 might be part of the pool:

https://globe.adsbexchange.com/?icao=ae4aea

Check Mark Knoller's tweet. He often goes along.

Steve Herman, W7VOA, is on the plane today.
