Air Force One’s new refrigerators cost $24 million
Air Force One is primed to receive an upgrade that will include new refrigerators expected to cost American taxpayers nearly $24 million. Due to the fact that Air Force One is a one-of-a-kind aircraft, many of its components require unique testing by the Federal Aviation Administration and the cost of the testing is included in the price of the component, in this case refrigerators. The $24 million contract will cover the costs of engineering support services for the new chillers — including prototype design, manufacturing and installation, according to the DOD contract.
