USAF A380

I found this Air Force One A380 design on Airliners.net
Has anyone seen an FS texture for it? I checked avsim, but they don't have it.

Will the president ever use the A380? Question I doubt it. Confused

It's not likely - the A380 is French Laughing

Also, it's too big - not all airports can or will accomodate the A380, which means the president can only go to certain areas on the VC-380.

If they do upgrade in the near future, I would expect to see a 777.

It is a 747 they use right now, right? A 777 would be cheaper to operate.

They do use a 747-200 right now - two identical 747's actually. I just recalled that the Air Force requires 4 engines on an executive a/c. The 747ADV would be the best bet for a replacement.

If they require 4 engines, why do they have the 757?

The four engine rule must be for saftey precations. Guest, maybe the 757 is not an executive a/c. Wink

The 757 is called Air Force Two. It's used for government officials, especially the Vice President.

It's actually a C-32. It becomes Air Force Two when the VP is aboard.

WOW WOW WOW WOW WOOOOW!

Let's get it right. Please don't leave out everyone else when you say the Airbus is French. Maybe you should have said it's assembled in France. It's built by a European Consortium and the major break down is as follows:

Aft and forward fuselage and vertical tail plane is built in Germany.
Centre wing box, centre fuselage, nose section Radome built by France.
Tail planes and centre belly fairing built by Spain.
Wings built in the UK.

There is also about 30 suppliers based in the the USA. For example Goodrich in North Carolina which is providing the main landing gear.

I've noticed how much interest you have in AF one. I'm not saying anything but would you like to fly one of those 747's for a career one day.

Sorry for the misunderstanding - I'm not discriminating. I'm just saying that it is unlikely that the President of the United States would have a foreign A/C

Sorry - you can't have it as Air Force One - the European Union have put their trademark on it.
