None on-line that I know of...but if you can gain access to the video on Air Force One, it has a segment of George H. Bush walking through it after its delivery. Its actually pretty basic.

I would think you might be able to contact someone at Andrews AFB or the White House and they might supply you with some official shots. But they might also tell you that it is a security issue.

I've been told that the press area is a little bit larger. I've talked to a few people that have been on the plane, and also from what I've seen of the safety card (yes, AF1 has its own safety card, and it's pretty detailed), I believe there are seats up in between where doors 1 and 2 on a standard 747 are. I'm not entirely sure though...but I do remember hearing that the plane can take 70 VIPs/members of the media.

What no escape pod?.

Seriously, there are few surprises here.

If you think of this as a large Exec jet.

Clearly, the Communications Room conceals many secrets, and "Cargo and Equipment" could mean anything.

Look for the Discovery Channel DVD on AF1. It has a walking tour of the VC-25. It's pretty indepth....and although the interior is nice, it is by no means luxurious.

Did they make him wear the AF1 Booties? The crew used to be very particular when it came to the carpet....

i dont think so SATL, but it wouldnt surprise me. but get this, a couple ramp spaces over was Japan's Air Force One, and they wouldnt let the TA guys touch the airplane with the stair truck, they made them keep it 2 inches away from the airplane. now thats anal, but Japan's jet was 10x more clean than AF1.

Yeah, I have mixed feelings about the AF1 interior. I would definitely make it at least look a little nicer on the interior, but then again, this is taxpayer money we're talking about, and being a democracy I think it's better that the interior looks more business-oriented.

I think somebody should publish one of those huge coffee-table books full of pictures of various official government aircraft. I'm sure some of you have seen the Sultan of Brunei's A-340? Now THAT's an official government way to trave!

If you are in the LAX/BUR area, go see and walk through the old AF1 (27000) at the Reagan library. It is well worth the visit for an A-Netter.

The interior is maintained as brand new, but it is not overly luxurious. Unfortunately they don,t allow pictures inside. It seems rather small inside when compared to the vsual impact of viewing the aircraft from the outside.

This really isn't open to conjecture anymore. We were treated to a peek at USAF Technical Order 00-105E-9, Rev.11 Aerospace Emergency Rescue and Mishap Response Information which was inadvertently posted on a site accessible from the internet. The TO provides information essential for rescue crews, including general arrangement of crew spaces, escape provisions and hazards to personnel. Chapter 7 includes the VC-25A.

There's no escape pod or anything like that. It does have airstairs that extend from the lower deck (i.e. the cargo space) both forward and aft providing entry to compartments on that level, which in turn have stairs up to the main deck. Nothing secret about this, as Bush has been photographed using the lower-deck entry:
