  • Air Force One - etc.

    There's also the Air Force Two, Marine One, and has been a Navy One. These are technically call signs/designations, but the following linked slide show is focused mostly on the "specific" aircraft. (I'll link to the other thread related in a following post). BTW, there's about 30 slides in this link and most all include blue type click links for more information;

      Wasn't there an Army One helicopter and wasn't it the helicopter that Nixon left the White House on in 1974?

          Army One and Marines One was the same helicopter. The call sign difference was due to the aircrew. Since 1976, the Marines were given the sole responsibility of flying the helicopter, but an Army soldier in full dress do meet the helicopter still.
