US Air Force Presidential Fleet @ Project Open Sky

Unread post by Tupolev 204 » Fri Jan 01, 2010

Hello everyone, I am always fascinated by the 89 TH Airlift wing based at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland, USA.

The US President travels in a modified B747-200 or VC-25. Commonly known as "Air Force One". To download and fly in FS2004 visit this links!

The President and Vice President, Secretary of State also use a modified B757-200 or C-32.
