Coming Soon: Presidential Planes

Postby SkyBoat » Sat Nov 14, 2015 9:56 pm

One of the legs of the USA tour coming up with be to fly aircraft that are provided for the heads of state. We all know Air Force One of the United States, but what about all the other countries? In doing research for the country's plane I want to fly (Canada), I came across a website that has two dozen very good photos of the planes flown by the presidents, prime ministers, and royalty of nations around the world. The nation and type of aircraft is identified and an excellent photo is provided to give you an idea of the livery. You'll be amazed and amused at the range of planes that are on the list.

Here's the website:'

Enjoy!

Unless Jabberwocky decides he doesn't not like Airbuses any more and modifies the A320neo to be a A319ACJ? :P

Well, as long as I don't have to fly them, I can do things with Airbuses as proven in the A360XWB, the A310 and a little in the A340-600HGW. The ability to suffer without whining is a military virtue, the ability to whine without suffering is a political one, I assume.
And btw, I take Angela's plane aka Airbus A340-600HGW if I can figure out how to handle it.

Why, is it not a A343 in Deutschland?
Depending on the length, either the A319 or the A330. (I will cheat and take the A332 if so, since it is really lots nicer now than the 333.)

Germany uses according to Wikipedia A340-313X, but that ones we don't have while we have an acceptable A340-600HGW. The confusion is, Germany had till 2011 also two A319s and a number of other VIP transports in a special squadron of the Luftwaffe to transport VIPs and those guys change planes all the time depending on where they go. Butthe official one for ther Chancelor is "Konrad Adenauer" and for Gauck "Theodor Heuss"

As a matter of fact, Andino just made a A340-313X shortly before his retirement.

yes. We had that in our mind.

I just want to ammend. the title of this topic says "Soon".

I won't call this leg as coming soon. More like ... coming eventually

Oh well.

Maybe we will have an A319ACJ by then.

USA Tour plans are secret until it happens. So eventually just means eventually :P

Well, I look at the A340-313X ... as I looked at the A340-600HGW before I knew, there was a 313X ... partially, I hafve simply the Airbus headache, partially, it's Yasim, partially it's the APs in both planes. Slow reacting, sometimes not at all, not consistent, but at all times willing to act against the pilot and crash the plane in the course of some weird flight envelope protection ... so, maybe, that's just authentic, I don't know? I am seriously pondering my options here, like repair Yasim planes again, refurbish as JSB versions, just pick something else ... but since eventually means definitively "not next four weeks", I don't have to decide this week.
