Ok VC-25A, bettern kown as Air Force One is a 747-200B, right. However it is powered by general electric CF6-80C2B1 engines, the engines for a 747-400 not the CF6-50E2s of a 200 model. So is Airforce One some sort of hybrid, and if so, I would like to know if it has a 200 series analogue flight deck or a 400 series digital flight deck.

The VC-25 is a 747-200B with 747-400 engines. The cockpit is the same as a 747-200B, excluding the EFIS. She was finished in late 1989, but underwent a year at Boeing's modification center in Kanas. The cost of the modifications were more then the aircraft itself, around 300 million.
