Seems that there is confusion about what makes an airplane "officially"
Air Force One. True any air force jet carrying the Big Boss has the radio
call sign "air force 1", however there is only one jet that is exclusively
reserved for the use of the president. This "official" air force 1 gets 
real special 
treatment from the maintenance folks!! It is also the jet which is publicly
recognized as AF-1, radio call signs aside.
