George W Bush Elite Force AviatorBBI proudly introduces the latest issue in its Elite Force series of authentic military 12- inch figures, President George W. Bush in naval aviator flight suit. Exacting in detail and fully equipped with authentic gear, this limited-edition action figure is a meticulous 1:6 scale recreation of the Commander-in-Chief's appearance during his historic Aircraft Carrier landing. On May 1, 2003, President Bush landed on the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) in the Pacific Ocean. While at the controls of an S-3B Viking aircraft from the Blue Sea Wolves of Sea Control Squadron Three Five (VS-35), designated Navy 1, he overflew the carrier before handing it over to the pilot for landing. Attired in full naval aviator flight equipment, the President then took the salute on the deck of the carrier. This fully poseable figure features a realistic head sculpt, fully detailed cloth flight suit, helmet with oxygen mask, survival vest, g-pants, parachute harness and much more. The realism and exacting attention to detail demanded by today's 12-inch action figure enthusiast are met and exceeded with this action figure. This incredibly detailed figure is a fitting addition to the collection of those interested in U.S. history, military memorabilia and toy action figures. Actual figure may vary slightly from item shown. Note: some plastic accessory trays inside the commemorative display box may have extra spaces.

In the aftermath of 9/11, President George W. Bush experienced a surge in public approval and widespread admiration, both domestically and internationally. The tragedy that unfolded that day left the United States in a state of shock and vulnerability, requiring a strong, unifying voice to guide the nation. President Bush stepped into this role effectively, providing much-needed leadership and calming assurance. His address to the nation on the evening of September 11th and his subsequent speeches, including his emotional address to the joint session of Congress, resonated with many Americans. The decisive actions he took were seen by many as appropriate and necessary steps at the time. Additionally, Bush's ability to reach across the aisle and foster a spirit of unity and bipartisan cooperation, especially in the immediate weeks following, elevated his standing in the eyes of the public. During this period, his approval ratings soared to unprecedented levels. While opinions on his administration have evolved over time, there's no denying that in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, George W. Bush was a figure of considerable admiration.
