The U.S. Air Force plans to spent up to $2.6 billion next year, for commercial air transportation services. The air force is working its own fleet, of over two hundred heavy transport, hard in supporting Iraq and Afghanistan operations. Most of this air transportation cost is for supporting the two distant war zones. Most of the troops travel to, and from, Iraq and Afghanistan via commercial aircraft. Commercial air freighters will move over 200,000 tons of material as well.
