Was that real? If so, there needs to be some people fired! That was amazing that they just walked up to the plane. I still cant believe it.

Um, I wonder if they realized that just setting foot on the tarmac was a felony and carries a mandantory $10,000 fine, each.
I was on the tarmac once (legally) when AF1 landed. The security was impressive. The escort from the company I was doing work for, even mentioned that a lot of the airport employees walking around, had never been seen by anyone working there before. I also watched a military helicopter drop some snipers onto the roof of a building. Needless to say, when the President is on board AF1 is pretty well covered.
As a side note, I would bet good money the video is either a fake, or else the plane in the vid is a backup/ spare for AF1.

I find that hard to believe! I think if it was real there would have been some mention on the news. Not to mention that plane is pretty well guarded, and not usually out of the hanger unless it's being prepped for something.

Even Snopes tho ''thinks'' it has to be a hoax as against seeming to have total prooof of same.
I do agree tho - unlikely - hard to believe security sufficiently lax to enable that to go down. Of course - re not being on news - there is that ''news suppression'' mechanism which if invoked can prevent release, as it would of course be embarrassing in the extreme.
I'll label it a clever spoof.

Remember: There is more that one blue and White 747 (E4B) with the Presidential Seal on it

That's true. Any military aircraft that has the President aboard gets the radio call sign "One". Remember when President Bush landed on the aircraft carrier a couple years ago? That airplane's call sign was "Navy One".
It's an interesting bit of fact that Air Force 1 only becomes AF 1 when the Prez is on/in it.
I guess that would make any ol' plane that the P.O.T.U.S. was on...an instant Air Force 1.
I think the video is fake. Clever, maybe, but fake.

And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.

If that was one of the Presidential fleet, it wasn't the one on-call for the President's use. They couldn't have gotten close to that one.

POTUS on Air Force Plane = Air Force One
VPOTUS on Air Force Plane = Air Force Two
POTUS on Marine Corps aircraft = Marine One
VPOTUS on Marine Corps aircraft = Marine Two
etc. for Army/Navy/Coast Guard
POTUS on Civil aircraft = Executive One
VPOTUS on Civil aircraft = Executive Two
POTUS family members ...... Airforce One F (pronounced foxtrot),Air Force Two Foxtrot
The list goes on.
Quiz: What is the plane called when the President and the Vice President are on board?????

If by SS you are talking about the Secret Service, unless things have changed they don't guard the plane, that is an Air Force job, just like the Marines supply the security on the "Presidential" Helos.

I agree. Likely one of the backup planes. I seriously doubt that an active AF One would be that unguarded. Still, pretty sad. Even if it were "just' a backup plane, those things are worth serious bucks. It would'nt take much to do some significant dollar damage, and I think someone in security would lose a lot of rump for a screw-up like that.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the weaponry to make the difference.

I doubt that they are allowed to both on a plane together.... ever.
