The VC-25 is a B747-200, with a 3man cockpit crew; yes it has a F/E.


This is by no means a normal 747-200. We know it has the -400 engines and other goodies. So is it really true that it has a 3-man crew?

The 7E7-3 wingspan is 52m (170ft), while the 7E7-8/9 wingspan is a whopping 59m (193ft.) Clearly will be an issue for medium-haul airports like Midway.
