Looking suspiciously like Air Force One, this flight's call sign was "SAM 29000 Heavy". President Obama did indeed visit Boston this day, but flew in by Marine One helo from Portland, ME. The VC-25 is at this point being ferried down from Pease, NH and is really nothing more than just another Air Force transport jet without the Commander-In-Chief aboard. Later that evening the aircraft gained its rightful call sign as Obama used it to get back down to Andrews. What do they do, Armor All those tires?

Its amazing how they keep those (2) aircraft so clean. Polished by hand before every flight from its hanger.

John I was thinking the same thing, has to be Armor-All on the tires. Very nice shot! -Ron

Awesome shot! It does appear that the tires are Armor All'd! I do know that they wax the entire fuselage by hand before each mission, so they probably do apply the appropriate cleaner to the tires too.

Great shot of a great plane in a great location. For the earlier poster, "Armor All" is an American tire clean & shine product.
