Barack Obama, the President of the United States of America is coming to India to be the chief guest at Republic Day celebration and there can never be a better opportunity to extend their ties with the USA. Obama will be on a 2 day visit and will be attending the ceremony and will go to see Taj Mahal. Barack Obama will travel in a behemoth of an airplane, the Air Force One. Here are some fun facts about the VIP Ride of the President. 1. Air Force one is not a plane, it's a callsign Yes, Air Force One is not the name of an airplane but rather a callsign signifying an airplane which carries the President of the USA.So, any airplane which will have the opportunity to carry the President of the USA will be termed as Air Force One. 2. There are two 'Air Force Ones' Only two of the highly-modified 747-200Bs – officially known as the model VC-25 – were ever built, and both were bespoke jobs for the White House. The other aircraft acts as an decoy in case of an emergency. 3. It is White House in air While you’d think the upstairs cabin of the 747 would be well suited to serve as the President’s working or sleeping quarters, the upper deck is given over to the communications room (as well as the cockpit, of course). The very front of the Air Force One serves as private quarters for the President and the First Family, including two couches that can be converted into beds. Next door to this an ‘Oval Office in the sky’ where the President takes meetings. 4. There isn't an escape pod We all have the seen the movie Air Force One and how Harrison Ford was hurried into an escape pod to save him from the Russian Terrorists. Well the real Air Force One does not have an escape pod which can be used to smuggle the President out of his plane. Too bad! 5. Upgrades are waiting! The current 747s are already over 20 years old, having first been wheeled out in 1990 during the reign of President George H. W. Bush . Starting in 2017, the US Air Force will replace both 747s with a trio of factory-fresh Boeings. It's suggested the stretched 747-8 Intercontinental will get the gig over the more advanced but smaller Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
