I just did a Photo search for interior pics of government aircrafts, but the results weren't those I wished for. I did find some interior pics of the Paraguayan Airforce or some other little states. BUt what I am really interested in would be pictures of the interior of for example the Air force One, of the German Luftwaffe, such as the Chancellors plane or of the Bombardiers they have. If such photos even do exist, which I kinda doubt. I think it would be also very interesting to see how much the government's plane differ from each other.....so keep the pictures roll!

The only interior pictures of a VVIP aircraft I have seen was that of the A340 from the Sultan of Brunei. All very golden and expensive looking! (Sent by email, so no link sorry)
I was once working on an aircraft that was next to a Brazilian Air Force A319CJ, but the security guards at the bottom of the stairs wouldn't let us on to it without a job card.
So I guess taking pictures of the interior would be even harder than getting into them!

Here's the only public photo of Dubya's ride, the president's suite in the nose of the 747:


And here are the floorplans of the aircraft:

Ans as you see the floorplan layout does in no way match the official AF1 photo above, so I reckon the florrplan actualy IS from the Movie plane and not from the original AF1

I find the cargo and equipment area as shown on the floorplan of AF1 very interesting. It shows it running right through the wing box in the side and top view, and is shown as being divided into two decks in the side view?

Wow, those colors are great!! Just like you say, it's pretty simple (looks IKEA-ish), but really nice. That J/Y config would look good on any carrier.

Pretty funny how the Colombian president has his own bed onboard a 73G, but Tony Blair sits in a BA F seat on a 772!

That pic is from 1990. Mexico have more than one aircraft for the use of President Fox, but I think the most used is that one, the TP-01 “Presidente Juárez”, but they might have re-conditioned it.. maybe a Mexica A.netter could give us more information...

Well not really unless the airstrip requires so. They have a couple of Navajos: MSP003 & MSP009 (MSP= Ministerio de Seguridad Pública) and they're not operated by the air force (since it doesn't exist) but by the Servicio de Vigilancia Aérea which is the civil air wing.

So here's the interior...


and I don't want to be mean or anything but... you guys will never have something like that...  scratchchin

Worth to menction they didn't even buy these two, they were confiscated from drug smugglers sometime in the 80s or 90s.

But honestly they barely use them. Our beloved pres' does most of his duty onboard one of the Nissan Patrols... but hey... you've got to see the MSP guys taxiing... they damn rock!  rotfl

yeah well they dedicate about 102% of their time in maintenance so I don't think it is that much of a threat lol. But there was an incident back when Jose Figueres was president (94-98), he was invited for breakfast at the EARTH campus (anyone heard of that college?) and upon landing on their grass (shall I menction wet?) airstrip the aircraft ran off and hit something with Mr Presi suffering minor injuries. Thankfully, so he could keep stealing some more coloncitos. He must be having a sweet time in Switzerland btw.  bouncy

TACA, AA, IB... depends on the destination. Sometimes he's invited by other Presidents attending the same event to share their planes {which is greatfully appreciated by the Costa Rican taxpayers].

Not as much US$ as Miguel Angel Rodriguez [former OEA Secretary in Washington for less than 3 weeks] and Rafael Angel Calderon Fournier. Both under criminal trial and behind bars not long ago.

I recall there was some controversy regarding President Pacheco's flights on TACA, mainly that I believe he used his VIP privileges for personal matters and for leisure.

Don't forget, President Rodríguez was arrrested aboard a TA A320.  Wink I don't recall the reg though.

No interior shots though, but both the German President and Chancellor use one of these beautiful German Air Force A310s.

Registrations are 10+21 (Konrad Adenauer) and 10+22 (Theodor Heuss). Both former Interflug DDR-ABA/D-AOBA and DDR-ABB/D-AOBB and named after our first postwar Chancellor and President respectively. This colourscheme however is relatively new, because last time I saw one of those on TV, they were in Luftwaffe white colours, like in this old shot of 10+21:

Prior to the A310s, the 707 was the aircraft of choice for the Air Force and VIP flights.
