Shumlin has no fear of official aircraft

When Gov. Peter Shumlin heads home to Westminster by plane, his landing is in North Springfield, the nearest airport. Vermont's equivalent to Air Force One is a 50 year old Cesna that two of his predecessors declined to use.

Governor stuck in Springfield
Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin missed the big ceremony for a record donation at UVM Friday because there was trouble with the state plane. He was stuck in Springfield.


  1. Is Governor Shumlin a pilot or does the state employ a commercial pilot? How much does it cost the state to operate this plane?

  2. I'd rather see this governor flying in the airplane made out of ironing boards.


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
