Alpha & Boeing in PDX,
You are both right. It was a BBJ during it's life with Ford, but has been redesignated a C-40 for it's military duties. I'm assuming it will be A VIP transport? Or will it be configured like the Navy's C-40's?
My other question is why did Ford dispose of this BBJ so soon? They received two of them not so long ago. I don't think they've even had it for a year.
Wonder if they are having parts problems with there Fokker. Sounds like the 717 could be a good replacement there.
I'm not a real aeronautical engineer, I just play one on Airliners.net.
