What Do The Leaders Of G8 Fly On?

Thu Jun 10, 2004 1:46 pm

The leaders of the G8 flew into Georgia recently for their yearly meeting. I saw clips of them walking off their respective aircraft at the airport. The clips were all zoomed in on the person though, and I couldn't see what aircraft they were. I know the President of the US flys his VC-25A, but what are these other leaders flying? I heard once that Prime Minister of England flys British Airways. Anyway, does anyone have the scoop? Thanks!  Smile

Thanks for the extras too, I suppose I could have left it open to any leader's ride. The only one's I've seen are the VC-25A and Egypt's A343, because they landed at EFD.

They all flew in on their personal "brooms".

I am wondering how they got all that martial law military hardware in there.....and how much they had to pay the 4000 residents to abandon their homes in fear of being labelled a "terrorist".

Does anyone know if president Bush flew directly from France to Hunter field? Otherwise if he had been in the country I assume they could have flown him onboard one of the C-32's.
