It has the bubble on the front upper end of the plane extending backward for the second level of seating. Some planes also have two levels for seating but do not have the “bubble” profile.

Here’s a comparison of the 747 vs 757. (I make no claim to having worked on AF1 but used to work at LAX and saw hundreds each week. The media is correct)

The real question that inquiring minds want to know is...Did AF1 have a golden toilet during 45's term in office?

AF1 is any plane that carries the commander-in-chief. If President Trump had gone back up on a flight in one of LU's Cessnas the designation of that plane would have become 'AF1'.

The media mistakenly refers to the aircraft as a 757. So the aircraft that landed in Lynchburg that day was a 747 aircraft. Let me make this clear again. You can say all you want that ANY aircraft the president flies is called AF1. The POTUS only flies in THE ONLY ONE AF1 that my friend works on for his safety and security because that very one aircraft has all the security measures needed to protect him. The aircraft is basically a flying command post with so many computers and other high tech instruments. If heaven forbid there is a national emergency like our country under attack. They do not immediately fly the president to DC. He will be in the air with his advisers and make decisions in the air until it is safe for him to land somewhere. They are not going to place the POTUS in “other” aircrafts.
This is first hand knowledge from a friend who worked directly with Air Force 1. Yet, some of you are here and talk like you an expert of this Please!

LYH's longest runway is 7,100 feet. A loaded 747 requires at least 10,000 feet. AF1 probably has some modifications that may allow for a shorter runway, but I can assure you... no 747 is landing at LYH.

Opsec forbids me from telling you.
Opsec has nothing to do with Ballcoach's sources! :)
My sources are not ballcoach's sources. I have only the best sources, believe me, they're tremendous, much more bigly than ballcoach's.
