As many of you UK guys know, this night Rice landed at Liverpool John Lennon airport. And I have been wondering if anyone has any information/photos of the plane that she arrived with? Is this AF1 B757 or anything else, I can't imagine her flying the 'jumbo'. too big for her isn't it? Anyone knows when is this plane about to leave? Some shots or ATC scans would be nice, and maybe even possible done by me if I only had the info. Everyting is being kept in secret.. 😕
I believe the equivalent of our government cabinet, in the US, fly in a 757, but if she came straight from America, then I doubt it would be a 757 as it can't fly that distance
I think it was Blackburn and not Blackpool 😉
I have searched for every picture I could find of Sec'y Rice's plane I could find. Unfortunately, the pictures never show the whole plane. The only thing I can be certain of is that it is not a 767 because the landing gear doesn't have the triple set of wheels.
Does the USAF have any tri-jets in their Air Force Two fleet?
It was a C-32A or B757. Search for 98-0001 at Airliners.net. Actually watched this land on my SBS-1 system
You appear to be correct. I did some more research and found tht the C32 does have the range for the flight.
Thanks you guys for info, already found a post on airliners.net http://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/2692801/ I wonder when is she coming back... Maybe I'll drop by the airport and look for some nice pic opportunities. But probably won't see much,
