Obama's First Flight on Air Force One



If you haven't seen it, National Geographic filmed a documentary called Aboard Air Force One, which focused on .. what else? Air Force One. A clip of the documentary shows President Barack Obama's first flight aboard Air Force One. Sounds a bit lame to film, but hey, ever since the inauguration, all eyes have been on the new President.

Some fun Air Force One facts:
- Whenever the President flies in an Air Force jet, that jet is automatically called Air Force One.
- No matter where the President flies to, there is always a companion Air Force jet along with the plane that he is in (Air Force One).
- Inside, the President and his travel companions enjoy 4,000 square feet of floor space on three levels, including an extensive suite for the President that features a large office, lavatory, and conference room.
- Air Force One includes a medical suite that can function as an operating room, and a doctor is permanently on board.
- The plane’s two food preparation galleys can feed 100 people at a time.
