25 Things You Didn’t Know About Air Force One

There’s no other aircraft in the world like Air Force One. It’s more than an expensive taxi service for the president. It’s a feat of engineering genius, built on the frame of one of the largest passenger jumbo jets in use. Over the years, it’s filled many roles to presidents and the people who surround those presidents, but it’s also been a symbol of America and freedom.

The Number of Floors

The details of the interior are not available for security reasons, but we do know how many floors there are. The Boeing 747 is a tall fuselage, affording three floors in parts of the craft. For example, the President’s entrance into the body feeds into a middle floor. There is another door for journalists, which enters on the bottom floor.

Square Footage

Most first apartments span between 500 to 1,500 feet. The interior of AF1 affords 4,000 square feet of space. That means the interior of this jet is probably bigger than 4X your first apartment. You didn’t host journalists, though.
