George W. Bush Flight Suit Doll

It’s not a bubblehead but the president has his own action figure: Elite Force Aviator: George W. Bush – U.S. President and Naval Aviator.

Actually, there is a bobblehead. And it’s cheaper.

    My bro-in-law gave me a George W. Bush bobblehead doll for Christmas last year. I treasure it. 😉 It’s not the one you link to and I think mine actually looks a little more like the real W.

    Ironically, it was George H.W. Bush who was the naval aviator…George W. was Air National Guard (he flew F-102s, as I recall).

    Well, he was all set to do the carrier landing by himself with an F/A 18 (until the Secret Services over-ride that decision).

  4. Jem says:

    I really doubt the option of the CiC landing ANY aircraft, much less an FA-18 (which, presumably, would have been of the two-seater variety) on the carrier ever came up for serious discussion. Landing on a carrier, even in relatively placid seas, is an exceedingly complex task–well beyond the capabilities of someone who hadn’t been trained (either on carrier landing procedures or on the aircraft type) and hadn’t flown a high-performance fighter in 30 years. You don’t risk the President, the lives of several dozen (at least) others, and the destruction of an aircraft on that sort of whim.
