  • Air Force picks 747-8 as Air Force One replacement

    That would be exciting!

    Not a surprise in the least. Sadly, though this will likely be the last order of the 747-8I. This was the last reasonable holdout. Even with the uncertainty over the future of the A380, there are very few candidates out there that need quads, and have yet to order.

    So, in all, not a surprise, and a brilliant aircraft (some may even say, built perhaps just for) serving an iconic capacity. I can't imagine how the extra space will be used, and how many ingenious new upgrades we will see upon the mighty Queen of the Skies.

    Bring on the pictures!
    Whatever is necessary, is never unwise.
