US Air Force $16 Million Design

Four top military officials are in the business of designing luxury air travel, including a 37 inch flat panel television. It just so happens that it's for military luxury air travel. So far they have spent over $16 million on the effort to reduce discomfort while jetting around.

Here's why detractors refer to the U.S. military branch as the Air FARCE: For three years, the top brass have spent counter-terrorism funds on comfort capsules. The top brass have picked colors and carpet and leather chairs. These aren't concepts either.

The production of the first capsule has begun. Of course there was a cost overrun of $331,000 that came from funds to fight terrorists. The generals decided to change the seat color to Air Force blue at a cost of over $68,000.
