The next time airfare seems too expensive, consider the cost of Air Force One, according to an Air Force Times article.

The plane that is used to carry the president, which is typically a Boeing 747, costs the Air Force $179,750 per hour to operate, according to a new Congressional Research Service report. Military planes are used for security and because of special equipment on board.
