Quoting AirRyan (Reply 1):
Current AF1 747's are the last 743's
They are 742's not 743's. Check them out on Anet.
|Quoting Boeing Nut (Reply 8):|
I think you will see the unusable overhead space on the current VC-25 will be used on the 747-8 to house electronic components from the E4-B to the point that the E4's could be obsolete.
|Quoting Alaska737 (Thread starter):|
since the current Air Force One is a 747-100, do you think that it will be updated anytime soon?
|Quoting AsstChiefMark (Reply 10):|
Calling the VC-25A a 747-200 is like calling a Ford Police Interceptor a Crown Victoria.
|Quoting Dw747400 (Reply 11):|
The VC-25As are closer to the E-4s than you might think. I'll admit my sources may be a bit bias (the VC-25 crew) but it sounds like both are fully functioning command posts these days and the difference in C+C abilities in small to none. The E-4 looks like it may serve as an alternate command post for general officers or leaders other than the president.
