Okay, and first of all this is no secret, you can see it from I-40 on the ramp (have to cover my ass here) but Air Force One (yes I know it is only called that when the Prez is on board but you get mypoint) i.e. one of the Two VC-25 747s that the pres uses is on our ramp here at Tinker, of course it has much security around it. I cannot even get close enough to read the tail number, even on our (AWACS) side of the Ramp. Has anyone heard what is up with this? I know the Prez is in Crawford, would they send the plane to a base for safe keeping?? I will watch the local news and see if they say something tonight. The folks I asked around on base today had no clue either, or weren't saying.
Well just curious.
Ciao, Hook 'em Horns, and Happy New Year,

Well I'll be darned that is it. You can't take pics on the flightline without a photo pass from PA. THat looks like it is near the fence near the commisary. I Didn't got to Base today for the holiday so I don't know if it is still here though I will look tomorrow (the 2nd) and see if it still there.
As a side not the one of our two TC-18s that shows up in that pic, is going away. We are getting rid of both due to new simulators.
