I'm way out of my league here but I thought this forum would be interested; apparently AF1 left Milwaukee headed for Washington as soon as they got word about the North Korea nuclear test.

I thought the spot where I loaded up the video would be interesting to enthusiasts; is this the only B742 that the Air Force has in use, besides what I presume is AF2?

And would you be able to spot this on FlightRadar24?

There are only two VC-25s. The non Air Force One aircraft uses a SAM callsign for its flight. Either SAM 28000 or SAM 29000.

As for FR24 they have once or twice turned the transponder on that I've heard of and let it be seen, but I don't think the president was on board at the time. That would be a massive security risk.

Makes sense, thanks for the reply!

I like looking at Flightradar, amazing how much is up there any given minute. The world's come a long ways from B17s.

This report said the earthquake registered 5.4 on the Richter scale earlier reports claimed 5.3?
Did they up the yield of the device?

wow. Never knew they traveled with transponders off.

Their transponder is on, the ADS-B portion is off. Many military aircraft fly with that portion turned off so they can't be tracked during missions. ATC still sees their transponder though.

Thanks Zaph. I was a little worried there. I assume the VCs have some sort of IFF as well.

They have all modes that military aircraft have. They have a few other interesting tricks up their sleeve too.

I also assume they have chaff as well as flare$ as some basic counter-measures. What I cannot imagine is all the EW they probably have on board.

F-15s can climb to 30,000 within a minute.
