Elizabeth Warren’s plane at Oshkosh

Parked along the main drag at EAA AirVenture (“Oshkosh”) was a homebuilt airplane with Native American portraits airbrushed on the vertical stabilizer:

As we walked by on Day 1 of the event, I said to the kids, “that must be Elizabeth Warren’s plane.” On every subsequent day, we took the 15-passenger hotel shuttle van and, of course, it was always jammed. We would drive by this airplane once in the morning and once in the evening. Every time, our 5-year-old would shout out “Elizabeth Warren’s plane!” for all of the other hotel guests to hear.

(Note the stats on the plane. 2,700 hours to build over 5 years and 3 months. That’s perseverance!)

Coincidentally, at almost the exact moment that our 5-year-old was announcing the Senator’s airplane, I received a group chat message/photo from a friend who is taking his family around the National Parks: “I found Elizabeth Warren’s relatives.”

  1. (Note the stats on the plane. 2,700 hours to build over 5 years and 3 months. That’s perseverance!) I think it’s finally safe to say she persisted!

  2. Thanks for the photos. That’s a beautiful plane, a real work of art, and a much grander tribute to Native Americans than anything Elizabeth Warren has done. Well…I suppose not the money side of it, though. Which is what she really cares about.

    Somehow it’s fitting that the Sun article about her $700,000+ private jet spending during the 2020 elections sits on top of a new article about Britney Spears trying to prove she is Un-Crazy Now with her latest nearly-nude Instagram pictures and their Deep Meaning.


    “There’s a way deeper meaning to the movement than you can ever imagine … my fans have always been so damn amazing and I love you all,” she concluded her caption.”

    • I also love the quote about the Green New Deal. How fondly I remember that.

      “Her website states her plans to address the “climate crisis will inject over $10 trillion dollars into our economy and create over 10 million new jobs.” – Only $1 Million in spending per job!

      I’ll tell you what: You give me $1 million dollars, and I will create 10 new jobs – including the facility, the machinery, and everything else. By the end of this year.

  3. Elizabeth Warren is now part taliban too. Got to be politically correct & throw in a few AK-47’s.

  4. Wow, you are so brilliant. Teaching your 5 year old to say “Elizabeth Warren” any time he/she/ze/they sees anything American Indian related? I bet you are proud of yourself, raising an insufferable a-hole. At least he/she/ze/they will be admired by other MAGA-tards — great parental goal!

    • Methinks the insufferable a-le here is you, Mike. If you don’t like what Phil is writing, just leave. I’m sure there’s more than enough safe echo chambers on the internets for your humorless moralizing.

  5. Isn’t it “cultural appropriation” to have a picture of a Native American on the tail of one’s plane?

    Double standards everywhere. In Canada high ranking politicians aren’t cancelled for having used “blackface”, but teenagers are thrown out of school for that.

    We literally live in Animal Farm.

  6. It is Deplorable (TM h.clinton 2016) to politicize a family project that honors family.
