Heads Of State And Their Aircraft

Sun Nov 21, 2004 1:09 am

With the recent surge in 'major' foreign visits to our country, I was wondering about the types of aircraft used by certain dignitaries.

For example, what kind of plane did the Kings of Spain use when traveling to Rosario?

What kind of plane do the sons of Princess Diana travel in, how did Prince Harry arrive to Buenos Aires? As has been the case with the Dutch royals for example, they travel in civilian aircraft when the trip is solely for pleasure.

Which type of aircraft is used by the South Korean president?

When the Israeli Head of State comes, what aircraft does he travel in and is it escorted in any way?

Do the Prime Ministers and European royals use the same or different aircraft on foreign visits? Are they military or civilian? I know these are a lot of questions but I'd appreciate some info. I have seen the Chinese president's plane as well as those of several Latin American countries who have recently visited Argentina. There are also a couple of US military aircraft at MDZ as we speak, including a military 747 and a 'C5 Galaxy' which are supposedly of the largest transport planes in the United States military.

The Prime Minister of Australia flies around the world in a Boeing Business Jet -

Up until a couple of years ago, he flew on a 707 but I guess in this day and age of curtailing Government waste, they bought a couple of BBJs to fly Australian government VIPs around. My taxes paid for this of course. I think a few years ago, there was talk of the RAAF acquiring 767s as VIP jets but this was seen as too excessive for the PM of 20 million people? Who out there knows what really happened here?

Based on the distance, the French President uses an A319 or a Falcon900 operated by the French Air Force.
In the past, preesidents were using the Concorde

RB211-524H:

The PM of Australia is not actually our head of state  Big grin, that title belongs to the Queen of England (also the Queen of Scotland, Wales, head of state of Canada. The role of the head of state is of course played by our GG Michael Jeffrey (sp?), and I believe he rarely gets a ride in the BBJs and Challenger, he flies dear QF a fair bit though.

There was a fair bit of debate about whether the BBJs were actually needed, but there are times where a bit of discretion is required at government level for those who we deem to be important to slip in and out of cities/countries with as little fanfare and public knowledge as possible.

Cheers

I think you got a good deal for your tax dollars. A BBJ is a decent size for a government official, uses much, much, much less fuel than a 707, flies with fewer crew and does not cost nearly as much as a 767, 747, etc.

>In the past, preesidents were using the Concorde<

France's situation was similar to what Tony Blair did a few years ago when he had a meeting with President Clinton. He chartered the Concorde for a trip that needed to be quick. I believe the President of France flew on the Air Force DC-8s and various other planes before they bought the Falcons and ACJs (Which flew Yasser Arafat's body to Egypt)

As our country, the presidential and governmental fleet's history to date has been rather colorful.

As Yugoslavia and under President Tito, the state had two Boeing 727-2L8 Adv's.

The Philippine president came through SFO on her way to the conference in Chile. She came on Philippine Airlines to SFO then transferred to a Primaris 757, which was going on to Las Vegas before heading on to her destination in Chile.

For example, what kind of plane did the Kings of Spain use when traveling to Rosario?

I read they flew MAD-ROS nonstop on an A310. I don't know if it was a civilian or military aircraft.

When the Israeli Head of State comes, what aircraft does he travel in and is it escorted in any way?

Israeli PMs always use El Al planes. The IAF has a 707, which I doubt is used for official visits.

Blair tends to use a chartered BA 777 on foreign trips. At one time they were looking at aquiring an airbus jet for VIP travel, but was felt to be too controversial to sell to the public.

Ireland has a Ministerial Transport air component of the Air Corps, mainly tasked with bringing people to and from EU meetings, especially those held in less than convenient locations.

As an island state with relatively few direct links, well at least in times of convenience of service to do out and back in one day, it is heavily tasked and serves the President, Prime Minister and Government.

Current aircraft are an elderly Gulfstream IV "251" and a Learjet 45 "258" - the latter delivered about this time last year. A Beech King Air "240" which was replaced by the Lear, is still in service but rarely does other than back-up duty on Irish flights.

The GIV is the second Gulfstram used and before that there were Ba125's - only one at a time then.

Well, the queen flies BA, so Blair should not get anything else  Smile. I even saw her flying a BAe 146. Must be an AV nut  Big thumbs up.

>The German politicians use an A310<

So does the military for their large troop transport. 1 guess as to what they used before getting the A310s  Big grin

Britain has the Royal Flight for the PM and Royals. Sometimes they fly ministers as well.

They fly the BAe 146 and 125, and anything else is covered by chartering BA aircraft (either the 777 or A319 on occasion). The TriStars and VC-10 aircraft don't do this role any more.

The VC-10s left VIP service a while ago and just do trooping or tankering nowadays. Margaret Thatcher used to eulogise them as she loved the VC-10 in VIP configuration.

The Queen was another who opposed the purchase of a VIP Airbus. She didn't like the idea of how much it would cost.

Her eldest son used to enjoy flying the 146 himself until he did £1 million worth of damage to one of them. Now he gets told to sit quietly in the back.

The President of China on a Air China 747-400 (I think it was chartered for the south american tour )
The Dutch royals usually comes on AF regular 777 flights via CDG.

The South Korean President uses his 737-300 for short haul, and charters either Korean Air's 744 (HL7402 mostly), or Asiana's 744 (HL7428 mostly) for long haul. I guess for his trip to S. America, he probaly used Asiana, that's what he has been using the most lately..

Derico ,

I know the President of your country flies T01 because I helped C Checked that aircraft in San Antonio. That aircraft has a set of “air stairs” on the L1 door. There are only 3 B757 that I know of with that configuration.

I remember the aircraft was a standard executive layout and used Secure-a-plane photoelectric security. The Argentine Airforce gave me a hat and I still have it to this day.

Wow, that's a lot more info than I expected. Thank you all.

Techrep, LX23, etc:

Yes, it's true about the T01, the subject of much speculation. It's been mentioned in other threads that there is simply a lot of inconsistencies in what is going on. The only Air Force aircraft with problems recently are the Tango 01, Tango 10, and the Presidential Helicopter... (although a military helicopter did crash near Bariloche the other day killing four personnel, but sadly that stuff happens if you are in the military)

It certainly looks suspicious, and I'm thinking that these incidents plus the trespassing over the fence at Olivos is what prompting the government to create as special 'covert security' unit for the president a la secret service. And spending on spying and intelligence, according to a local paper today, will increase 15% next year.

Derico,

The Lockheed C-5 Galaxy is the largest plane outside of Russia. 247' long and 800,000lbs. The 747 is just slightly smaller.

The Antonov An-124 is about the same size as the C-5, slightly shorter but heavier. The An-225 Myria is the worlds largest plane, 260' long and 1.3 MILLION pounds at takeoff.

Techrep: RR techs in EZE have declared both of T-01s turbines as "inoperable", and the Argentine gov't is apparently going to "rent" 2 spares (probably from RR) to be able to ferry T-01 to Tel Aviv for it's next C-check at IAI. When the incident with the turbine happened, T-01 was already flying beyond the C-check dates.
As to what Derico said, it does seem slightly suspicious that all of a sudden, the Presidential fleet is plagued by all of these problems.

LX

N1120a, the 'doomsday' plane you refer to is the E-4B, a 747-200, and there are 4 of them.

And are you saying there is 2 747's with aerial refueling capability in addition to the 2 VC-25's and the E-4B's? If so, what is their designation/use? Just curious as I've never heard of them.

No, I was talking about the E-4B's and the VC-25s. Thanks for catching me on the 4 E-4B's instead of just 2
