Air Force One is the official air traffic control call sign of any United States Air Force aircraft carrying the President of the United States. Since 1990, the presidential fleet has consisted of two specifically configured, highly customized Boeing 747-200B series aircraft with serial numbers "28000" and "29000"—with Air Force designation "VC-25A". While these aircraft have the call sign "Air Force One" only while the president is on board, the term is still used colloquially to describe either of the two aircraft normally used and maintained by the U.S. Air Force solely for the president, as well as any additional Air Force aircraft used by the president.
Air Force One is a prominent symbol of the American presidency and its power. The aircraft are among the most famous and most photographed in the world.

Gracias por tu comentario.
Una bonita composición en tonos azules y muy agradable. Lo único que molesta en esta foto es la señal de prohibido aparcar, pero que le vamos a hacer todo no lo podemos pedir. Muy buena toma de este avión en fase de vuelo.
Un saludo de Antonio

very interesting this picture, principally the bright of blue paint of Jumbo. I love aircraft pictures. Great job, my friend.

Although it's amongst the most photographed in the world, I had never seen what it looked like, so I am happy with your picture!
This is a very well captured aircraft taking off with the colour of the plane matching that of the sky!
However, the bright colour of the aircraft gives a fine contrast against the subdued tones of the background, with the hills melting into the clouds.
Humorous title: I expect the pilot had better not crash into the lamp post, the occupants being so important, but the capture is effective!
Have a good weekend!

Nice shot and note. I wonder if you got the picture in movement?

This is a nice shot of this famous jet. You have stopped the action nicely giving us a sharp shot. The lighting and colors are great as well.
