I’m guessing we all must have heard of that term Air Force One, right. Well for those who don’t know, Air Force One is the presidential plane of the U.S. president. It symbolizes power,control and success.
The Air Force One is the most decorated and still one of the the most lethal Boeing 747 in the world. The president is expected to switch from the Boeing 747-200 to the Boeing-8 by 2024.
The Air Force One is been kept under the care of the 89th Airlift Wing at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland where a combat team of 1,000 men are always on standby and ready to go when it comes to transporting the president from one point to another.
Whenever Air force one is on the move it is always escorted by some other combat jets like the C-17s and the C-130s.
The interior part of the presidential plane includes a conference room, officesfor the president’s cabinet members and extra space for 100 passengers.
One of the most interesting thing that makes the Air force one exceptional is the fact that the presidential plane can be refueled mid-flight, that means the president can choose to stay airborne for as long as he desires.
The Air force one has been equipped with the most recent and up to date high tech on-board security system. Firing an Electromagnetic pulse (EMP) at the Air force one is useless because the entire plane has been fortified to withstand any level of EMP.
Of course the secret service ain’t stipid enough to give us a detail info on all the components that in the Air force one but one thing we know for sure is that the plane is gonna have some really insane weapon’s system.
