A state auditor found that Missouri's planes had been underutilized, and the purchase of a $5.6 million airplane for Gov. Jay Nixon was unjustified. "It looks to me like it was wasteful," said auditor Tom Schweich. "When I look at the data, I don’t see how you could justify a new plane." Nixon has been widely criticized for his use of the plane since he took office in 2009.
