AF1 Has An Entrance By Cargo?(Pic)

Sun Mar 05, 2006 5:59 am

If you look at the picture on cnn.com the very first picture it shows the president entering his plane through the cargo door. How cool is that. I didn't know they had that. That means he has 2 staricases. That is pretty cool.

The lower deck entrence has been well used in the past. It's no "secret" or recent find.

Actually there are two sets of stairs, one forward and one aft of the wings.

They are primarily used as service entrances, however due come in handy at facilities that might not have stairs to reach the main entrance.

You may notice these cargo door are on the left side of the airplane, not the right side like their cilivan B-747 sisters.
