I believe this is also enough money to put blended winglets on the 2 C-32Bs as well as the 4 C-32As. The C-32Bs are the "white tails" without markings, and equipped with RR RB-211 engines, the C-32As have the USAF VIP livery and are equipped with PW2040 engines.

The winglets are being installed by Goodyear Aviation at PAE. At least one, and I believe both, C-32As have visited for conversion.

Where did the 2 C-32Bs come from? I know the 4 C-32As are basically a 757-2G4 built specifically for the USAF...so are the B models 2nd hand aircraft assigned permanently to the 89th Airlift Wing?
Regards.

Yes, the C-32Bs were bought second hand. They are usually used by the Sec. of State. There are some places she flies to where having US Military markings is not a good idea.

The C-32Bs are all white, and only the tail number is painted on them.

00-9001 (cn 25494/611) was N987AN before leased to Avianca
02-4452 (cn 25493/523) was N757AV before leased to Asnet

both were (or are?) owned by AnstWW

They are operated by the 108th ARW of the New Jersey Air National Guard at McGuire AFB.
