Has Anyone Been On Air Force One?

Fri May 04, 2001 7:46 am

In all of us a.net members someone must have riden on Air Force One. Maybe as a member of the Press, maintenance technician, politician, presidential advisor, or something. If so how was it? How did it differ from a regular airliner 747? Which President was on it?

ummmmmmmm, no!

Practically no one here has ever been on AF1.

You might wanna try askin' Bill Clinton and/or G Dubya.

I've been on Air Force One, but we didn't do it...


BTW, shouldn't it be in instead of on Air Force One?  Big grin

I was on the 707 that carried Kennedy to Dallas and back to Washington dead. That was at Wright-Patterson AFB.

If I told you, I'd have to kill you.

I believe my aunt has flown on AF1 a few times.

I've only been on the ex-AF1 707. And I didn't fly on it.

I love America. I guess that makes me Bush's poodle, but I'd rather be a dog in New York City than a prince in Riyadh.

I was on SAM970 (Nixon's round-the-world trip AF1). It is parked at Seattle's Museum of Flight. Kinda cool.
Also interesting is how the President ran everything from a small VC-137... its quite a cramped presidential aircraft.

I've been on the one that's at the Pima Air Musuem in Tucson, Arizona. The one that came right before the 707.
