The 747-8 has a longer range, greater maximum take-off weight, and higher top airspeed than the 747-200 that it is intended to replace, as well as better fuel efficiency and lower carbon dioxide emissions. Capable of Mach 0.855, according to Boeing, the 747-8 is the fastest commercial jet in the world. However, the modifications required for a presidential aircraft are extensive. The VC-25A version of the 747-200 is capable of in-flight refueling, carries a full communications suite, and is "self-sufficient" at airports (having its own self-deploying "air stairs" and baggage handling equipment). … [Read more...] about Trump tweets rage at cost of new Air Force One: “Cancel order!” [Updated]
