How do they manage to keep the plane so clean?! I've never had seen any dirt or lose paint on the Air Force One. Great plane and a very cool shot of it.

Hopefully he'll be upgrading the an A380 as soon as possible. That bird is looking outdated!

Oh, its intense how they keep this thing clean. I watched a documentary on it and it was insane. They're always waxing and polishing it. Its a full time job keeping this beauty nice and clean.

Rumor has it that AF1 gets a full detail after every flight (round trip that is)

I tried to catch of Obama while he was here, security too tight though...to the person who posted this plane is outdated..I don't see an American president flying in a non american aircraft, and no matter how outdated AF1 may be, it's still the best looking plane out there.

Excellent composition. No clutter to take focus away from this beautiful bird. On obtrusive but relevant ground elements to give context and a sense of size. *****
Re: Outdated: Outdated? This is not a normal 747. Everything from airframe to avionics are better and reinforced for any foreseeable event. This is a flying fortress that is kept in top-shape by a dedicated crew. I don't think there are many planes around the world that are better maintained. And, No stock A380 would be able to match this bird in the features that it provides.
