What kind of air defense systems are on board this thing? I am thinking AIM-120 AMRAAM's and multiple sets of flares. Is there an escape pod or is that just hollywood shit?
>>
>>28912780
Pretty sure it just carries a metric fuckton of countermeasures. The offensive armament is left to a fighter escort
>>
My guess is some avionic scrambling technology. Who knows maybe even stealth coating.
>>
If Air Force One needs to take a BVR shot, you're basically dead. There's no way it can generate enough energy to take a good NVR shot, and g limits of +2.0 and poor visibility and being gigantic prevent any chance of surviving a merge.
>>
>>28912780
The air defense system consists of the entire US air force between it and the nearest enemy plane.
>>
>>28912780

Probably no missiles. Fighters provide weapons
>>
>>28912780
i always thought the presidents plane should have been something really badass, like an sr-71 blackbird or something.
>>
>>28912835


Fighters only escort it on special occasions , most of the time it flies solo
>>
>>28912846
Yes. and she should have a motorbike for travel on land.

Almost as impractical.

Hope it has like 10 of those YAL lasers powered by secret alien power generators so it can zap all terrorists and threats in a 3 mile radius.

Flares, chaff, decoys, passive ECM. Possibly active ECM.

Definitely nothing offensive. Just soft countermeasures.
>>
>>28912812
>stealth coating on a fucking huge airliner

You're not hiding that giant from radar no matter what.

It travels with an escort of c-130's for the presidential limo, and security cars. If anything is armed, its probably those.
>>
>>28913540

>C-130

Naw dude, I work less than a mile from Dallas Love Field, when prez rolls in its a c-17 that rolls in with him
>>
>>28912780
It has cutting edge countermeasures, both active and passive. No weapons are on it, thats dumb as hell. It has eagles and raptors for that.
>>
>>28914173
>Implying they don't have an armory or something
>>
>>28913502
This, although I have read that it does have active ECM / EW systems (probably to a limited extent) and also has DIRCM (same as today's C-17s, etc).

When will there be a new airframe or design for Air Force One?
I know it undergoes upgrades often and it's basically a supercharged badass specialized 747 but aren't there plans to replace it?
Seems like a flight of multiple unmarked C-17's with countermeasures and ECM devices would make more sense, not a big trophy kill with lots of obvious support and escort aircraft.

>When will there be a new airframe or design for Air Force One?
Bernie will scrap it in favor of The People's Presidential Train.
>>
>>28912780
Those are actually SABRE engines, it can just fly into space.

Well his obsession with failing countries in Europe might explain an affinity for rail travel but I think he believes himself to be such a special and one of a kind guy that even Sanders would want to travel in safety.
>>
>>28912828
uusally it just flies with a couple of f16s or f18s. i have seen it flying overhead before, its backup is nothing impressive
>>
>>28917658
then again, this was flying in america. im sure flying overseas they deploy the good shit

There is a aviation paint shop at my local airport. They normally do 787s but they got the contract to do Airforce one.
And yes, my contact there said that there is a stealth paint coating applied along with the polyurethane paint.
The US airforce destroyed any tools/equipment that the stealth material got on.

>>28917562
They announced they selected the 747-8 for the replacement. Practically the only companies which could fulfill the requirements were Boeing or EADS (Airbus), and the competition for stuff like this is basically always rigged in favour of American companies so EADS pulled out rather than dealing with that shit (not to mention making a one off product is expensive).

New plane is meant to be in service in 2017.
>>
>>28918664

what's with the sawtooth thingys at the back of the engines?
>>
>>28918669
It creates less drag during flight, the same reason for the winglets on the wing tips.
>>
>>28918664
Every documentary and article on the subject says that the outdated avionics of Airforce 1 747s were an advantage because it left them less vulnerable to failure and electronic attack.
>>
>>28917585
Probably replace it with The People's Glorious Cessna 172.
>>
>>28917987

You have nothing to say about it.

Nothing.

>>28918669
Reduces noise. 787 uses them as well as I think the new 737, but I think there was speculation that the new 777 wouldn't be using them

>>28918688
No, but the engines are more fuel efficient.

88, get yourself an exit bag.

669, it make the engines quieter by changing the shape of the air flow from the fan using shape memory alloy. A higher temperatures (takeoff thrust) they curl in causing the fan air to suppress the noise from the turbine.
>>
>>28918693
I don't really see how it would make much of a difference and I'd think the airforce and boeing would ensure there was extra protection than normal, but modern cockpits reduce the workload significantly for the pilots.

Plus since the last planes were introduced, more advanced technology like pic related (basically night vision crossed with the aircraft instruments) have entered the industry.

You don't have to. You can believe what you want.

I tried to get pictures of Airforce One, but hangar doors were always closed and security was just too tight. All I have are 787 pics.
>>
What are the credentials to be the pilot?
>>
>>28912926
Apparently it receives escorts on international flights, but doesn't on internal flights
>>
>>28918664
Apparently part of the deal was that the bulk of the parts needed to be made in the US with final assembly taking place in the US too
Obviously building two or three planes in the US wasn't going to be cost effective, so that's why the pulled out

if you've crashed a plane due to pilot error, your application is rejected

Even in the US, train travel is safer than air travel. In terms of fatalities per passenger, air travel is one of the most unsafe forms of travel, hence why airshills always favor the fatalities per mile traveled statistic

You're on 4chan.
You're on /k/.
You're asking for information on possibly the most closely guarded and most sensitive secrets in the United States.

>You have got to be fully retarded.
Oh, and to answer your question--not a single fucking person here knows.
>>
>>28920167
Trainshills are the worst. There's a reason the airplane superseded that shit in the 50's.
>>
>>28917658
Those planes are just to warn off civilian aircraft. Military aircraft would be intercepted much further out.
>>
>>28917884
Well done
>>
>>28920231

Considering the LEOs, FFLfags, MerkGunner, and the endless tide of POG washouts this board contains, it'd be a wonder that someone doesn't know.

When obummer touched down at Ft. Campbell when I was there, they had 6 F-22's in tow.
