So, what are the differences between the "basic" 747 and
the two special 747's known as "Air Force 1" for the US
government?

Presumably the avionics are substantially upgraded,
as are the communications equipment on the craft...

I also guess that the Air Force 1 planes are the
longest possible range 747 produced, possibly even
hung with extra fuel tanks, and that they're mid-air
refuel'able.
