Hello, i was reading about Mr Trump visit to American Troops in Irak and read this declaration,


"“I had concerns for the institution of the presidency because — not for myself, personally,” he said. “I had concerns for the first lady, I will tell you. But if you would have seen what we had to go through, with the darkened plane, with all windows closed, with no lights on whatsoever, anywhere — pitch black. I’ve never seen it. I’ve been in many airplanes — all types and shapes and sizes. I’ve never seen anything like it.”"

¿Is there a black or stealth Air Force One?

Maybe he has never been in a plane in complete darkness before.

Exactly right.
God is reading and comprehension that hard or is it easier for some people to jump to stupid conclusions?
What they did is standard practice going into any area that may have MANPADS active. Clearly standard war zone practice in Iraq and Afghanistan over the last 15+ years has somehow escaped the notice of some.

They turned of the lights. It’s that or Trump just let slip a classified aircraft but I think they just turned all the lights off.

To be fair he exposed a seal team so you could be right but I doubt it

"Air force one" isnt a specific aircraft. It's code for any aircraft that the president is traveling in.

Because the helicopter, is a marine vehicle. Hence marine 1

When it’s an Air Force vehicle, he’s in Air Force 1

Never really thought of this, but it would make sense to trick out a stealth bomber or design the president jmhis own stealth aircraft. Keep it close by, underground in case of the worst case scenario

the POTUS jet has some pretty neat tricks it can conjure if need be.

let alone the other aircraft around it.

just a little tidbit, but when Hillary and Donald where in my city during the campaign was one of the times i saw a smaller silent black triangle.

so i imagine if candidates get that kind of protection the POTUS gets equal or better.

The VC-25 was caught, in photographs, over the UK. They gave the trip away by miscoding the transponder of the aircraft. They coded it as a C-17 so it didn't show as a VC-25 on tracking sites, but the code they used had never been seen by spotters, so people started watching the flight and figured out that something was wrong.

Here's an article about the trip.

There's a nice shot of the MATADOR.

So this bbc article implies that the trip was easily traceable for anyone with a desire to do so, surely not so?

All aircraft, including military and Air Force One will have a trackable transponder by 2020. They can recode it, or turn it off, as they did near Romania, but changing the code won't always work, unless they are far more careful than they were on this trip.

So did someone drop the ball? From a laymen’s point of view it looks like a school boy error for a potus trip to be so predictable
