It was OBAMA. Besides Airforce 1 & 2 he has Marine 1
And they all fly every where the President goes according to program I saw on Discovery a while back. In case something goes U/S on the first aircraft, they've always got a back up. There was me thinking Barry O'Bammer was an advocate for Green Issues :roll:

Technically Obama doesn't have a Air Force 2. As it would immediatly become (as does ANY aircraft in the AirForce that the prez gets on) Air Force 1.

If he flew Army or Navy do they have a Army or Navy 1? Esp thinking about George W... didn't he fly on to an Carrier in a Tomcat or similar?

That was the trip where he said "Mission accomplished" or similar, several years before he realised it wasn't really. :roll:
If you look at the pic below, you can see "George W Bush, Commander in Chief" stencilled on the co-pilot's side. It's in a museum somewhere in America.
