The actual Air Force One(I guess there are two) is a 742.
When do you think that the U.S. are gonna replace it?
What aircraft do you think it's gonna be?
Guess what country will they visit first with the new plane.
I would like to see the american president flying a A380 as the Air Force One, but it's quite sure that will be another Boeing, at least another american aircraft in 2010. I would love to see the Air Force One at Rio's International(GIG).

It will not be replaced for a while. The current aircraft (VC-25) are about 10-11 years old. They still have plenty of useful life. The VC-137's that proceded them served for 30 years, so it will be a while til a replacement comes. Odds are it will be an aircraft that hasnt even been on the drawing board yet.
