Also is right to call the Air Force One a 747-300 ?? Or just A upgraded -200 (Super 200)
Neither. It's a VC
-25. See here: http://www.af.mil/factsheets/factsheet_print.asp?fsID=131&page=1
Whenever you talk about why it has this or that, or it's missing this or that (like winglets), then you can in some cases say "because it's based on a 747-200". But to answer your question exactly as it's worded, if someone asked you the actual designation of this aircraft, it's a VC
-25 doesn't need winglets because it's capable of mid-air refueling. It might save a little money to have winglets but you can't just stick a winglet on a wing that wasn't designed for them, so it's not worth the effort or expense, I'm sure. The VC
-25 is not really about saving money in any case.
Why not a new livery for every new president that goes into office? (curiosity But with the Campaine money that is leftover HEY put it into a paint job)
Because the airplane doesn't represent the President, it represents the country. The livery is the livery of the United States of America, not the livery of George Bush or Bill Clinton or John Kerry. The livery has been basically the same since the days of John Kennedy, and if you ask me, it still looks classier than almost any other livery flying (especially now that BA
changed their classic livery).
It would be illegal to use campaign funds for something like this anyway. The plane is owned by the US Air Force, not by a presidential candidate's campaign organization.
