Air Force One History

Why does the picture above say "The Sacred Cow"?

The first president to fly in an aircraft while in office was Franklin D. Roosevelt, who traveled on a Boeing 314 flying boat to a 1943 conference in Casablanca on the progress of World War II. The first aircraft officially designated for presidential flight was the C-87A Liberator Express, a reconfigured B-24 bomber. This plane was called "Guess Where Two."

President Harry S. Truman's first airplane, a C-54 which is under the control of the Air Transport Command, was called "The Sacred Cow"

Eisenhower also introduced two other propeller aircraft, the Lockheed C-121 Constellations (VC-121E) to Presidential service. These planes were named "Columbine":

2. SULTAN OF BRUNEI'S FLYING PALACE

Sultan Air Still Rules
A spy in the US Air Force says he toured the Sultan's latest personal aircraft after it had just been remodeled in Waco, Texas. The Sultan bought the Airbus A340-212 brand new for roughly $100m and had it flown to Waco where the interior was completely removed. Then he had the US defence contractor Raytheon install $120m worth of improvements inside and out. And yes, he says, the sinks are indeed solid gold and one of them is Lalique crystal.

The spy said he had gained entrance into nuclear weapons storage areas more easily than getting in to see the Sultan's latest toy (with his concealed camera).

"The Sultan bought the Airbus A340-212 brand new for roughly $100m and had it flown to Waco from the Boeing factory"

Someone needs to tell the source that no Airbus A340 would be flown "brand new" (or, likely, at any other time) from a Boeing factory. Airbus is a European company, Boeing is American, and they are in perpetual competition.
