Air Force One is the official air traffic control call sign for a United States Air Force aircraft carrying the President of the United States . [1] In common parlance the term describes those Air Force aircraft designed, built, and used to transport the president. The presidential aircraft is a prominent symbol of the American presidency and its power. [2]

The idea of designating specific military aircraft to transport the President arose in 1943, when officials of the United States Army Air Forces , the predecessor to the U.S. Air Force, became concerned over the reliance on commercial airlines to transport the president. A C-87 Liberator Express was reconfigured for use as a presidential transport, but the Secret Service rejected it because of its safety record. A C-54 Skymaster was then converted for presidential use; this aircraft, dubbed the Sacred Cow , carried President Franklin D. Roosevelt to the Yalta Conference in February 1945 and was subsequently used for another two years by President Harry S. Truman .

The "Air Force One" call sign was created after a 1953 incident during which a Lockheed Constellation named Columbine II , carrying President Dwight D. Eisenhower , entered the same airspace as a commercial airline flight using the same call sign. [3] [4] [5]
