A couple days ago, Mugmar posted a couple shots of one of the current Air Force Ones. I believe there are three of them.

Here is a shot of an older Air Force One taken at the Boeing Aviation Museum in Seattle. I'm not sure what model of airplane it is but it looks a lot like a Boeing 707. The airplane was open to the public and I got to tour through it. It is primitive by today's standards. The communication center is about the size of a small office cubicle. There is room for one person to sit. No computers. Teletype machines and very old radio equipment. The rest of the plane was very much like an older airliner. The cockpit is also primitive by today's standards.

This shot is a scanned 35mm slide. I have tried improve it a bit. There is vignetting at the corners and I'm not sure what caused that.

Nice job with the slide conversion, Cal. Hard to beat slides.

Nice photo, Cal. I'd like to see the inside of a current Air Force One just to check out the technology deployed!
