2 empty tequila bottles were found on under-construction Air Force One planes

Boeing is investigating the discovery of empty liquor bottles found inside a plane set to become the new Air Force One, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Two small bottles of tequila were found this month on a Boeing 747-8 under construction in San Antonio, The Journal said, prompting the company to launch an investigation.

Boeing has supplied the official air transport to US presidents for decades. The Pentagon said in 2016 it had tasked it to manufacture two new Boeing 747-8 aircraft to replace the two 747-200s now used by US presidents.

Where the bottles were found on the 747-8 is not clear. Alcohol is banned at the Boeing facility, The Journal said.

A Boeing spokesperson told Insider it was a personnel matter and that it could not comment due to contractual reasons.

When completed, the Boeing 747-8 will be the longest commercial passenger jet in the world, according to the company. The total cost of the new aircraft to the US is $5.3 billion, according to DefenseOne.


They are already drinking aboard AirForceOne and it isn't even off the grounds yet.
