I know that when the President of the United States takes the VC-25A (AF1) there are some C-5 aircraft that carry the limos, helicopters, etc. and that travel in the same group.
But isn't the speed of the 747 faster than the C-5? Does the 747 have to slow down so that the Prez isn't sitting on the tarmac after landing, if it's on a multi-city trip, waiting for the limo to arrive and be unloaded and fueled up? Similarly, once the President is ready to go to the next location, does he have to wait until all the support aircraft have finished loading up the vehicles before taking off? It seems it would be a hassle to wait for these slower planes and loading/unloading. How does it work?
