SEATTLE -- A Kalitta Air Boeing 747-200 delivers a soft puff of white smoke as the jet completes its second-to-last landing ever Thursday at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

USAF 29000 is a B742 (usually known when occupied as AF1 ) Times are a-changing, indeed... 30 years of service is no small run! Hat tip to a long service, and a thanks to all of the 'third seat' operators!

There are two VC-25As: s/n's 82-8000 and 92-9000. They are always, not just usually, "Air Force One" when the President is onboard. Anyone else "occupying" them gets a different call sign (such as "Air Force Two" when the VP is flying on it).

The USAF has four E-4Bs, also derived from the 747-200: s/n's 73-1676, 73-1677, 74-0787, and 75-0125. These are the so-called "Doomsday Planes".

NASA has a 747SP.

Since Operation Enduring Freedom, the Afghanistan War, the SECDEF uses one on overseas flights. The others are kept 'ready to go' at alternating bases around the country.
