With all the air traffic around Copenhagen, Denmark for the International Climate Change Convention, you'd think that no particular aircraft would stand out very much. There's commercial airliners, Gulfstreams, Learjets, and everything in between. There are even helicopter shuttles for transferring passengers who arrive at smaller airfields.
Even so, one aircraft stood out sharply from the rest: a matte-black helicopter, with no markings, which drifted down from the sky with as little sound as a falling leaf. It settled quietly in front of Hangar 41, and two passengers stepped out: US President Barack Obama, and Tiger Woods.
Each carried nothing more than a small duffel, and they disappeared quickly into the hangar.
Shortly afterward, the black helicopter lifted off into the sky, and drifted away to the southeast.
Pres. Obama was earlier in Oslo, Norway, where he arrived in Air Force One to accept the Nobel Peace Prize. The next stop on his European trip was planned for Copenhagen, to attend the Climate Conference.
The questions: Why didn't Obama fly in Air Force One, the aircraft most typically used by presidents for international travel? And what is Tiger doing with him? And why, of all things, a black helicopter, flown to a remote hangar?
The simplest answer is always the best, and in this case it's obvious: Obama and Tiger are both cheating on their wives, and they're working together to hush things up.
In fact, this is very likely the case, since a growing body of evidence indicates that Tiger and Obama are twins separated at birth. Studies of twins separated at birth, and raised in separate households, have the same personality traits to a remarkable degree.
