The U.S. military is currently Prestwicks biggest customer


?s=20

The House Oversight Committee is investigating refueling stops at the remote Glasgow Prestwick Airport just 23 miles from Trump’s Turnberry resort in Scotland. Military personnel stayed nights at Turnberry, spending federal funds for lodging and food that went to the president’s company, both Politico and The New York Times reported.
The fuel could have been obtained more cheaply at an American military base.

Both the government-owned Prestwick and Trump’s Turnberry have struggled financially, but their bottom lines have improved since Trump moved into the White House.

Prestwick’s refueling contract with the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) is about to expire. Total payments to the airport since 2017 could total as much $21 million by the time the contract ends, The Scotsman reported.

But the airport has a new, longer contract beginning October 1 and running through the end of September 2024, the newspaper reported. The value is yet to be determined. But the new deal would involve supplying some 12.4 million gallons of aviation fuel — about 3 million more than the current deal, according to The Scotsman.

7. Nothing to do with Trump

USAF has been using Prestwick since the 60s. The longest runway was built at the request of the USAF to USAF standards.

Sorry, no scandal.

8. Can't yell "RUSSIA" anymore. Is it "SCOTLAND" now instead?

This certainly must be an impeachable offense, signing contracts in the 1960's for use of the airport for military refueling.

I bet Trump set it all up from High School.
