27 Things You Didn’t Know About Air Force One

The President of the United States is arguably the most powerful man in the world – meaning his security is tight.

As a result of this, the POTUS travels like nobody else and has a fleet of transport engineered to ensure he is protected at all time, whilst in luxury of course.

Air Force One is the president’s aircraft that is bigger, better and faster than any other commercial aeroplane in the world.

Here are 27 things you didn’t know about Air Force One.

The Amount Of Floors

Red State

There are very limited details about the interior of the plane for security reasons, but we do know there is three floors. The Boeing 747 has a middle floor that the president enters on and journalists and press enter via a door on the bottom floor.

Square Footage

Most first apartments span between 500 to 1,500 feet and the interior of Air Force 1 has 4,000 square feet of space.

Back Up Jet
