OK A.netters...see if you agree with me or not.

There aren't many aircraft that are more majestic than this airplane.

Now shouldn't all Presidential VIP aircraft have the same livery? Try to visualize it on the C-32 and C-40..

The 707 "Air Force One" had it of course and looked incredible.

For that matter, it would be great on the C-9 and C-37 as well!

It is one of the most widley known liveries in the world. And it represents who we (Americans) are. I however want to know why its labeled "vc" instead of dc or boeing?

The official US Government designation is Boeing VC-25. V=VIP C=Cargo literally, but truly means transport. -25 just means that is the 25th VIP design submitted, but not nessecarily entered into service. For example, there was an F-17. There will never be another F-17, after that one lost to the F-18, and all following fighter designations will count the F-17 as a design.
