    Video - Guys Paints Graffiti on Air Force One

    This video is amazing for several points.

    1. Several of us were in the military and had to do guard duty. Can you imagine the feces that hit the rotary oscillator after this was found?

    2. If these had not been just taggers and had been real bad guys, they could have just as easily have tossed a couple of satchel charges into the two engines as spray paint them.

    3. Never fear for your Homeland Security. We have the best security services in the world!!!

    Yea, right.

    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.

    This certainly appears to be a hoax:

    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.

    Hoax or not...it was a damn interesting video.
    Thanks acparmed.
    It could have been a back up plane.
    Whatever...it was very well done.
    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.

    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".

    I think the video is fake. Clever, maybe, but fake.

    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.

    I saw this on GT, yesterday. A friend, who was a SP, in the mid 90's gave a SEAL a fatal dose of 00 Buck through the back, when the SEAL did not "appropriately respond" to the challenge that was called out (the SEAL was climbing a mooring line). This happened stateside.

    My point being, the SS is more inbclined to take live prisoners for intel, but with a tagger's bag & cans, I don't think you'd be sucking everyone else's good air for long. Anyone with the least bit of awareness is going to notice (even if you're wearing ramp jammies) someone spraying 3-6' crap on AF-1. .

    ATC 101:::::

    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.
