What was the crisis over Berlin?

The crisis started when in 1948 the Soviet Union tried to effectively get the whole of Berlin under its control. Stalin hoped to achieve this by closing to the Western powers all roads and waterways leading to Berlin, making Berling totally dependent for its food and all its other necessities from the Soviets. The Western powers circumvented the Soviet blockade by starting an airlift to Berlin, providing in well over 200,000 flights its citizens with food and supplies. The Soviets were forced by its success to lift the blockade in 1949.

What is the travel expense for the president of the US?

Well, a Boeing 747 like Air Force One burns about 5 gallons of jet fuel a mile. Then there's maintenance, operating expenses other than fuel, such as maintenance, parts, crew salaries for the 15-person crew, food, etc. It's pretty hard to come up with a fixed figure, but the government has used figures of $56,518 per hour for Air Force One and $14,552 per hour for Air Force Two (which would probably be the rough cost per hour of the C-7 cargo plane - below). There is an extra airplane (usually an Air Force C-7) that carries any other equipment needed, like Marine One (the President's helicopter), cars for the Secret Service, and so forth. We must also consider the expenses and salaries of the Secret Service agents and the advance security teams who work with local law enforcement to set things up in the days before the trip, and housing for everyone at every stop if it's overnight. And then there is the cost to local agencies for equipment, officer overtime, and so forth. Suffice it to say, moving the President (or the Vice President) around is an expensive proposition. Lesser dignitaries often fly in Air Force Gulfstreams, or on commercial flights, but the specialized needs of the President and Vice President require specially-equipped aircraft that can, if necessary, serve as a flying White House in the even of an emergency (and which carry special classified air-defense capabilities in case they are attacked).

President Ronald Reagan.Depending on what you consider the first flight, the answer is either Ronald Reagan (President January 20, 1981 - January 20, 1989) or Jimmy Carter (President January 20, 1977 - January 20, 1981).DateOrbiterMajor event02/18/1977EnterpriseFirst flight; Attached to Enterprise Shuttle Carrier Aircraft throughout flight.08/12/1977EnterpriseFirst free flight; Tailcone on; lakebed landing10/12/1977EnterpriseThird free flight; First with no tailcone; lakebed landing10/26/1977EnterpriseFinal Enterprise free flight; First landing on Edwards AFB concrete runway.04/12/1981ColumbiaFirst Columbia flight, first orbital test flight; STS-1Enterprise never flew in space but it did fly in the atmosphere. If you consider Enterprise to count as one of the space shuttles, then the first flight was in 1977 under Carter. If you only count the flights that launched into space, then Columbia was the first flight and occurred in 1981 under Reagan.
