      I used to work at a high end appliance dealer and it is insane how much money people spend on appliances. I remember one person bought about 75,000 dollars worth of just appliances for their kitchen. The most expensive fridge we sold was actually very popular and it sold for a little under $17,000.

    It's never clear in the video what is actually being talked about. The title suggests one fridge, the video sounds like it was many fridges and chilled compartments throughout the plane.

  • Dave

    This video is ridiculous and completely clickbait. There is no single fridge that costs 24 million dollars. What they're actually talking about is a refrigeration platform facility that supports 3000 meals, high survivability, massively customized and all certified as air worthy, and fully backed up. Cheap at 24 million.

    ALL THE INFORMATION YOU FOUND OUT IS THE SURFACE. Sections of the plane are even off limit to the president. It has offensive and defensive measures. The technology on that plane is enough to make your knees buckle. Not even the president knows the planes capabilities for security reason. The only people who know are Boeing, the Pilots but each knows a select option. The plane has a crew for monitoring the plane and knows how to carry out defensive measures allowing the pilots to focus on flying and they take care of any threat. This information is updated routinely and the information that they know becomes outdated. Also note those engines are not the ordinary ones that are found on the b747-8 they have the power plants that rivials B777 engines. Imagine 4 of those engines on a plane! the wings have been reinforced and redisinged. Giving it better flight maneuverability. That Plane would and could theoretically maintain flight on a single engine!

    i disagree with the statement "an office away from the office" as this plane clearly has no golf course on it

  • Slim Williams

    Well, any electronics on board the fridges would likely have to be heavily shielded from E.M.P’s so they keep working in the event of a nuclear war. Design a high tech bespoke piece of technology with no chance of future orders, now pay extra security to keep everything top secret, then make all those systems redundant, now make everything able to withstand the side effects of a nuclear warhead and it’s not hard to see how the cost could get out of hand.

    i think it cost so much coz they have to break lots of the part of the plane to get it into the plane.. also i think that the food is not for party only, i think it is used for backup food when trump go to the underground bunker

    Accept it can't stay airborne indefinitely. Only as long as there's someone on the ground able to fly a tanker plane up to refuel it. :p Come WW3, USAF Airbases are likely gonna be pretty high up on enemy target lists.

    worth every penny. It is possible to freeze the president and keep him alive for years. In the event of apocalypse they will freeze president trump for the sake of everyones sanity and to stop him eating all the food in two days.

    Ok, so miscommunication error, it not a box fridge that costs this, this is a custom walk in fridge for a small air force base that is at least a mile high

  • MrJamesconn

    Maybe I dont understand because im just a blue collar american, but i understand the need to feed the president and all the people on the plane for quite awhile. I dont understand why they have to eat fancy food while the average citizen on the ground is stuck in a war zone. Just checked the internet for the price of an MRE and my price would be $7.50 each im sure the gov gets em alot cheaper. At 3,000 meals thats $22,500 which is alot but you dont need a fridge. Im tired of politicians being on a pedestal. Politicans are supposed to serve their country not get rich and live in the lap of luxury. In the event of WW3 MREs would work fine.

    I mean worst case scenario if the staff were surviving a nuclear blast, I don't think there would be much infrastructure (or citizens) to govern over. One could even say that it's tax-payer funded survival for a few, and the funds could be put to better use. And even if there was a faction attempting to down AF1, they'd probably go with some form of overwhelming attack (whether it be a swarm of guided missiles or a wing of advanced aircraft) instead of piddling around.

    If you work in the aviation side of defense contracting, the price wouldn't surprise you. That price includes design, development, production, transport, installation, training, and spare parts.

    Given the following all the add on costs it's probably about right. Problem with government contracts is they have so many requirements to ensure they are getting the best deal that the price sky rockets. The feds set minimum pay rates that are in the $65 per hour range if you include labor burden. They have safety requirements beyond the minimum so overhead costs sky rocket. They have additional testing requirements. Now add this is for an airplane. And it's air force 1so the overhead goes up and up again. And at each level overhead and profit. Which multiplies at each level like your mortgage interest. Then you have to be a qualified and approved company, with requirements to achieve that status adds more. I've been a lowest level subcontractor for years and it's easy to see. Yes on 24 million the cost is about 20 million. Keep going down to basic components and the number drops. Actual cost with all the extras added is probably $9M but with layers 9 becomes 11 becomes 13 becomes 16.5 becomes 20 becomes 24 Mfg to dist to wholesale to subcontractor to contractor to government.

    It sounds like they're giant walk in fridges. Special walls and require special ventilation and everything protected from electromagnetic radiation. A bit misleading to keep showing household fridges while talking about it.

    There is a whole lot functionality on that fridge. Maybe an indestructible human fridge that allows the person to be frozen if there is an emergency and allows it to be defrozen so that the person could be preserved.

  • Error Error

    Price makes total sense. A fridge with minimal power requirements, 100% reliability through turbulence, blast waves, etc., full EM shielding, backup system upon backup system, etc. is very likely to cost 24 million of not more

    That $24M fridge price was already the cost of the 1st original Boeing 747 plane or with a few dollars more, you could buy a russian Mig-29 or a chinese JF-17 modern fighter jet in today's market ($25M ea.). So unless that fridge can fly at jetsonic speed and do multirole combat missions.. ah I don't think it's worth the price.

    The fridges probably get involved in multiple ways of weight saving and multiple choice "system sources to keep things cold and radiation free using the smallest energy consuming footprint possible" among many other very expensive to meet criteria.

    1:47 why is there an A380 refueling a 747-8..... also the A380 would be as big as the 747-8 not smaller... also why are all these aircraft flying with their gear down....... that would damage the gear and possibly destroy it, i know im overreacting but i just wanted to clear my mind on that
