Air Force One Model Project Photo Gallery:
This is a Boeing 747 Air Force One Presidential plane, duplicating the actual plane, tail #28000. It is built with blue 2"construction Dow Styrofoam from Gerber Lumber in Kidron, Ohio. For structural support I have installed plywood spares for reinforcement. For special affect I have placed all the United States Presidents pictures in the cabin windows. The plane cabin is fully lit and the exterior has flashing strobes similar to the real one. I've installed 2- OS91 ducted fan units and 2 imitation engine cowlings. Our very successful maiden flight was November 25, 2006. Tom Erb from Hartville, Ohio was the pilot of Air Force One for the flight. Please check out our recently added photos below from this flight.
