Air Force One Comes to Town
时间:2014-8-22 16:05:51        作者:佚名        来源:学习周报

  美国总统座机是波音747型,也称空军一号,总统可在机上处理政务,被称为“空中白宫”。

  President Barack Obama returned to his hometown recently to campaign for the Democrat running to fill his former Senate seat. The first President to ever fly on a plane was President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1943. The call sign for the plane was The Flying White House, a term used until President Dwight Eisenhower was in office. That’s when the call sign became Air Force One. (Fun Fact: Eisenhower is the first President to have a pilot’s license!)

  Currently(目前,眼下), two upgraded Boeing 747s serve as the President’s planes. Inside resembles a hotel rather than an average passenger plane. Everything available to the President at the White House is also available on board the plane. The 4,000 square feet of space contains living quarters, office space, a bedroom, and even a workout area.

  And while on the subject of anniversaries, it was 100 years ago Monday, October 11 that the first former President ever rode on a plane. A year after leaving office, President Theodore Roosevelt took a ride on one of the early Wright Brother flights. The Wright Brothers are considered the inventors of modern human flight.
