Joe Biden got to enjoy one of the perks of the presidency for the first time Friday, flying aboard Air Force One after plotting a run for the White House for decades and admiring the plane from afar.
‘It was a great honor,’ Biden told reporters who flew with him for the short hop from Joint Base Andrews to his home of Wilmington, Del.
After landing in his hometown, Biden wandered over to reporters who joined him on Super Bowl weekend, notwithstanding CDC guidelines on avoiding travel when possible.
'It’s a great plane .... it’s the same plane that we had as Vice President, only it’s much nicer,' he said. He flew on the smaller Air Force One, which shares the same paint job as the large 747 that ferries presidents around the world and on longer-haul flights.
He noted it has a ‘nice conference room’ and ‘plenty of room for you all back in the back.’
Biden said he took advantage of the time to catch up on the news – and flashed a broadsheet newspaper that was in his hand – another visual departure from the TV-focused diet of his predecessor.
Asked what he had planned for the weekend, he told DailyMaill.com the trip was to ‘see my grandchildren and hang out with Jill.’ He didn’t answer an earlier shouted question about whether he was setting the right example by taking the trip.
