The world's most exclusive airplane, a combination of a luxury hotel and a super-secret military command post, is profiled in this documentary produced by National Geographic. The history of presidential flight, from its beginnings with President Roosevelt making a secret wartime flight in 1943, is covered, and particular attention is appropriately given to the historic flight that returned President Kennedy's body to Washington after his assassination.
Filmed in the closing months of the Clinton administration, the film features the preparation for a presidential trip, which includes close involvement of the military and antiterrorist specialists of the U.S. Secret Service. The makers of this highly informative film were given unprecedented access to Air Force One, and the footage of the presidential 747 is spectacular. --Robert J. McNamara
