I'm sure several of us have seen the movie "Air Force One" with Harrison Ford, where he is President and Air Force One is hijacked. My question is, do you think any of that stuff is real, like the weapons vault and the escape pod? Just curious.

I saw the documentary too. On A&E or Discovery, can't remember which. Very interesting on how they converted the Aircraft & on the different planes used throughout the years. Check it out if you have a chance. Weapons vault? Definitely think so!!

Unless you're the president or at least a technicial of Air Force One you can't know what this a/c has and hasn't.What made me most impression, among many things in this movie, is if a B747 has the ability of refueling during flight.I know you'll answer that it's been modified but I don't think this can be done in a B747.By the way I hate this movie.

The VC-25A can be refueled inflight and can withstand a nuclear pulse, this is all coming from the Boeing site. The aircraft has a cruise speed of Mach .925, but can most likely in emergencies go above. Take a look on there site.....a $150 Million dollar aircraft doesn't cost $500 Million for nothing.
