Air Force 1

I know AF1 is due in to Denmark today.
Anyone know when it's scheduled to leave, and what would be the best HF frequencies to listen out for it, as it crosses the Atlantic. I stay in the UK, if that's any help.

Great site folks,  :D

I don't know the answer to your question, but if you are referring to Air Force One, the callsign is actually A1, not AF1.

Did you know that any aircraft that carries the President from a 747 to a Cessna 152 is Airforce 1 on the radio

Air Force One is when the president is on a Air Force aircraft. (R1 for Army One , VV1 for Navy One, VM1 for Marine One) .  I believe when the president is on a civilian aircraft it is called Executive One.

That is true only of the Cessna is operated by the Air Force.

BTW the rest of the lineup is:
A2 - VP on Airforce a/c
A1F - First Lady on Airforce a/c
A2F - Wife of VP on Airforce a/c

Therefore Laura bush on a private or commercial flight would be operating as, "Executive one foxtrot..."

thanks for letting me know that I had just heard a bit of that and hadn't heard the whole story obviously
