Hi all,

I was wondering: What is the callsign of air force one?

I can't find it on wikipedia...

Thanks.

Um......Air Force One?




Air Force One is actually the callsign used whenever the president is onboard the plane. When the vice president is on the plane, it is Air Force Two.

Same thing for other branches also. Example Navy One.

Also known as A1.

But if you're thinking about tracking it on a flight tracker, forget it.

The tail numbers of the two modified 747 aircraft sometimes used to transport the president are 28000 and 29000 and the air force identifies the airplanes as VC-25A's, but like cactus said, air force on is the call sign of air force one.

It was changed to AF1 a while back.  I can't remember why.

Hence the callsigns of the VC-25As when the president or vice president are not on board are SAM28000 and SAM29000 respectively.

Is the ICAO code:  AFO ?

The callsign as it would appear on the strip is A1.  A is the USAF designator, R1 would be Army One, VM1 would be Marine One, VV1 is Navy One.

I am not exactly sure how Executive One (when the POTUS is on a civilian aircraft) would appear, although I assume it would look something like EXE1 or something like that.

No-The call sign on the strip and the ARTS display is now AF1. (at least when it is Air Force 1)

Ah, that new to me, but then again I haven't had to deal with that battle...yet.  Well that and I didn't really dig that deeply into the 7110.65 last night either.   Thanks for the corretion.

The Venus callsign is used for many other aircraft out of ADW.  You will see GLF4 ,LJ60, B737, B757 or King Airs with that call sign.

Old post but I would like to mention that one of the two 747's was at MDT today doing touch-and-go's (like it does often), and it was "Venus One Heavy".
