Our friends over in the Danger Room had some fun at the expense of the Air Force and called the service to task for a new commercial that features a C-17 landing on a bridge and then totally morphing into a different air craft — things that the huge cargo plane doesn’t and can’t do. The commercial uses the tag line “It’s not science fiction. It’s what we do every day.” Oh really?
An Air Force official told the Danger Room that the ad isn’t so much about the aircraft in the spot, but the service’s aerial medical evacuation mission, which this reporter has had the opportunity to see in person. But what do you think the Air Force is selling in this ad?
