Maintenance is continuous, and most checks are above and beyond what is done on a commercial airliner.
Welcome to Nothingburgers. May I take your order?

Have to wonder if either VC-25A has accumulated enough hours for a major check ... they spend a lot of time not flying.

Most of that time not flying, the Air Force is performing maintenance of some sort or another, or cleaning/polishing.

Those 747s are probably kept in better shape than when they left the factory brand new.

It's the availability of spares that's causing the problems. Less than 10,000 hours TT, i think?
