What is our flying command post--a 747. Is that what you're referring to? I don't know the military designation.

It was a 747 without any doubt.

Could it´ve been be Air Force One ?
Or an E-4B flying command post, since civil airtraffic had already been stopped at that moment?

My vote goes to the E-4.
