An Air National Guard five-person crew for a C-17 plane stopped by Trump Turnberry, the president’s luxury golf resort in Scotland, during a supply trip from the US to Kuwait this spring, according to a Politico report published on Friday night.

The crew from the 176th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron also made the same stop on their return trip, Politico reported. On previous trips, the same C-17 was said to have made pit stops at US bases in Germany and Spain for refueling, which similar military planes traveling to and from the Middle East take on their routes.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
