Speaking of U.S. Air Force 747s, when I was once on an Air Force One hangar and plane tour, I heard some story about an extra window that had been installed next to the desk where the President sits so that he (she?) could have a view. I believe the fuselage was otherwise windowless in that vicinity. Apparently, this was a simple-looking fix that ended up being a major engineering feat to pull off. I never did get the full story. Any Boeing-heads know anything more about this?
