I believe Mexico uses a 737-300, Canada a 310 and Japan has a 747-400. For a presidential visit earlier this year the Korean President travel to Costa Rica in a Korean Air 747-400 which cause quite a stir in San Jose.

As well as all of the Gulfstreams and the Presidents 747, the US government has four 757 VIPs that are used for the First Lady, Vice Pres, Sec. of State, and some other cabinet members when needed. This is the same with the group of BBJ's that the government has.

Quoting FRAspotter (Reply 21): Quoting Airfoilsguy (Reply 14):
Anyone have any pics of what Airforce 1 looks like inside? I would love to see a layout map of it.
If I told you that, I'd have to kill you... Wink
But seriously, stuff like that is kept classified...
I believe FRAspotter is correct in so much as you probably won't find a schematic of the interior..but I don't think the entire interior is a secret. I believe there was a video put out about the time of the 747s were delivered, celebrating all the years of AF1... certain areas were shown/explained.
Why is that? Hundreds of non government types fly on it, reporters and the like. I don't want the secret stuff, just what the rooms look like. There are books out on what every room in the white house looks like.
