India's own Air Force One

Recommended Posts

A Business Boeing Jet (BBJ), patterned on the US president's office-in-the-sky Air Force One, was inducted into the Communications

VVIP Business Boeing Jet Squadron of the Indian Air Force.

 

The jet is one of three the IAF has purchased and is equipped with state-of-the-art security gadgets and the latest communication systems.

 

The first BBJ will be christened Rajdoot, a name initially borne by a Russian TU-124 and then by the Boeing-737 the new jet is replacing. The BBJ is based on a newer generation Boeing-737.

 

The Communications Squadron ferries the president, the vice president, the prime minister, the service chiefs and other dignitaries.
