Technically speaking she and her sibling 20-1102 are of course superior to the USAF's & 'POTUS'' 2 VC-25A's, basically 747-200's. Those are older both in design and age, having been delivered on August 23rd and December 20th 1990 versus the 2 Japanese -400's delivered in 1991 to the Japanese govt. while not being taken into service until transfer to Japanese Air Self Defense Force (JASDF) on April 1st 1992. Operated by 701st Hikotai (Squadron) of the Tokubetu Koku Yuso-Tai (special Airlift Group), used primarily as LR transports and often ferrying govt. officials around the world. Such as the day before yesterday, 29-4-2013. Because yesterday I saw this very bird parked at Amsterdam Schiphol airport. She had brought in the Japanese crown princess (and prince?) in order to attend, among many other royals, the crowning of our new king (and queen).
