I was back at the zin with fellow opshot member Zach this afternoon...About 3:15 pm we noticed a large aircraft heading eastbound overhead...Well it turned out to be a Boeing VC-25A (747).Iam guessing it wasnt Air Force One.....or was it? .Heres a photo..

Wow...cool catch!  Actually, they WERE in Detroit today, so that could very well be AFOne!

Nice catch! It's amazing what you can see overhead when you pay attention.

What is clear to me is that it could have been Air Force One since the blue paint extends up and over the cockpit (a bit of trivia I learned during my visit to Pima Air & Space Museum.)  The question is whether the President was actually aboard.

Well, if he wasn't aboard, it wasn't Air Force One, blue paint or not!  ;)

Thats kinda what i meant. I was sure it was the presidents aircraft, it was pretty easy to tell,but to be called  Air Force One the president has to be onboard.....

I was commenting more on Redngolds question rather than yours!  I was just being an "intelligent donkey"! 😉
