Wonderful catch and click, Dave. (Filling in all five ...)
Gorgeous shot, and always a wonder when you see it. The flight from Philly to Andrews is so tight that the machine is probably level for, oh, two minutes before is commences descent. Not aware that the President was in Philly recently, so I think this might be a dated shot. But no matter. P.S. A Plane-spotter's paradise there, at KPHL, with fantastic vantage points from both ends of the main runway.

That would be AF-1, right..?
Kevin Popeck
A beautiful picture of a beautiful ship. That truly is a great picture.

That was after the NAACP convention in 2015 I believe.
Tony Long
Isn't it true that it's only referred to as AF-1 when the President is on board? I know this group would know this...
Mark See
Tony- Yes that is true. Also, the "1" designation follows the President around no matter what military a/c he is on. If he is on any other Air Force aircraft then that one would get the designation of "Air Force 1". And if he was on a Navy aircraft it would be "Navy 1" and so on for the other branches.

Also, Tony id he were to fly on a commercial a/c the 1 would be there as well. (e.g. American 1 or Delta 1)

Adding to Mark's; when the helicopter takes POTUS from the WH to either Andrews, Camp D or wherever, it becomes Marine 1.

Roy, I doubt POTUS would fly officially on a commercial flight considering security issues. Even if he were to fly as a private citizen, the airline would not change the call-sign.
Roy Hunte
Didn't mean as a commercial flight, just to use the a/c but it has never happened so I don't know if they would actually do it. His a/c are always there for long flights so there hasn't been a need to use a particular airline. (did some research after I made that comment.

If an incumbent president is traveling on a commercial flight or civil aircraft, its call sign is "Executive One".

This did indeed happen in 1973 when then President Richard Nixon traveled on a United Airlines DC-10 scheduled flight from Washington Dulles International Airport, KIAD, to Los Angeles International Airport, KLAX.

Were the Vice-President onboard a commercial or civil flight, or the President's family onboard such a flight, the call sign scheme is continued... e.g. - "Executive Two" for the V.P. and "Executive One Foxtrot" for presidential family members. This has also happened.
Roy Hunte
Thanks for the info Cliff!

I believe these 747's are scheduled to be replaced by -400 models for the AF-1 fleet in the not to distant future.
Roy Hunte
Actually the 747-8 is the future AF1
