Update: it’s been suggested that the recording is a fake. It’s really funny (to me, at least) though either way and worth a listen.
I’m really not sure how I missed this.
President Elect Trump may have issues with the projected cost of a Air Force One replacements but even if elected to a second term he might never fly in those. He’ll have to make due with the current model.
However if he does fly ‘Trump Force One’ his private 757 while President I believe its call sign would be ‘Executive One’.
In the meantime, until Trump’s inauguration, the plane is still identified as ‘November 7-5-7 Alpha Foxtrot.’
Here’s air traffic control talking to Delta (excited to ‘see the Trump plane take off’) and to Trump’s plane. Delta asks for air traffic control to hold off on instructions while they take a photo. Then the controller thanks Trump’s plane ‘for making ATC great again’.
