Ok. We had a great off topic discussion on Air Force 1. So why not put it to a poll?

The last option is partly true. POTUS only flies in the 747 and when the the 747 can't be used due to runway restrictions then that is when the body doubles come in. Or in Biden's case, all the time 8)

Did I cover it all?

I really wish that ECC guy would make a bet with me. We'll fly to Atlanta, go to the Delta flight museum, and without going inside or underneath any airplanes, I bet I could identify the Boeing 747 and the Boeing 757 they have parked there, as well as the DC-9.

We aren't talking about Delta. We are talking about the plane the President of the United States uses! Your knowledge means absolutely nothing to me!

And I was talking to ECC, not you. My offer doesn't apply to someone who can identify a 747 and a 757 from the side.

I mean, it is the internet. Anyone can create an account and claim anything.

As an AvGeek, someone who claims to know someone who told them it was a 747 that flew into Lynchburg and that said someone also told them you can't tell the difference between a 747 and a 757 makes me seriously doubt their story.

Obviously a parody account. That’s clearly a 747 in the picture. Which means any 747 is AF 1. Pfft
