Replacing Two Outdated Refrigerators On Air Force One Will Cost Taxpayers $24 Million

January 27, 2018
Can't they just swing by Best Buy and pick up a couple of refrigerators on-sale? Unfortunately, it's not that easy when you're talking about replacing a couple of outdated fridges on Air Force One.  These "cold chiller units" aren't like your usual in-kitchen appliance: the custom-design refrigerators (required to store 3,000 meals) are going to cost taxpayers $23.6 million. Even with regular maintenance since they were installed back in 1990, the refrigerators have been in progressively tougher shape from year-to-year. If all goes well, the two new cooling systems should be good to go before October 30, 2019.  The installation process will be taking place in several locations: including Oklahoma City and San Antonio.
