Dear Friends:

As many of you have noticed, The Internet Movie Plan Database (impdb.org) has recently had a hard time keeping up with the growing demands of our users. In 2009 when a couple of us got together to begin putting the website together, space was never an issue. In fact, it has steadily grown with virtually no problems throughout the years.

In about the middle of 2016 we began to run into server space issues. We have since made upgrades (moving to a VPS, buying more space, etc), but the site continues to outgrow the upgrades. The meager ad revenue generated by the site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server. We who manage the site have never made money from it, it has only ever earned enough money to cover actual server costs.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we are asking for donations to keep this site up and running consistently like it did when it was a smaller, newer site. If you've enjoyed this website and would like to see it continue being the site you go to for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Oh yeah, new users and edits are now active (hopefully for good) while we're testing new and improved spam/bot protections :)
Thank you,
IMPDb Staff

This article is about the film Air Force One. For the USAF aircraft see Boeing VC-25.

Air Force One DVD cover.

Movie (1997)

Starring:
Harrison Ford (President James Marshall)
Gary Oldman (Ivan Korshunov)
Glenn Close (Vice President Kathryn Bennett)
Wendy Crewson (Grace Marshall)
Lisel Matthews (Alice Marshall)
Paul Guilfoyle (Chief of Staff Lloyd Shepherd)

When the President's plane is hijacked over Europe there is little Washington can do to help. They must rely on the people on the plane to fight back as well as being careful of who to trust.

Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk

The backbone of the US Army helicopter force is seen picking up the troops at the beginning and transporting the VP to The White House.

Boeing 747-146 (portraying VC-25A 'Air Force One')

The VC-25A is seen throughout the movie with the main action scenes being based around it. This is obviously not one of the actual ones but a very good representation.
Registration N703CK, c/n 19727/54 built in 1970. Rented from American International Airways, precursor to Kalitta Air. Previously flew for Japan Air Lines as JA8103.

Parked at Moscow waiting for the President. Notice the lack of a bulge on the nose just below the cockpit where the real aircraft would have a mid-air refueling point.

Lockheed C-5 Galaxy

Seen in the background at Moscow Airport supporting the President's visit.

McDonnell Douglas F-15C Eagle

These fighters are scrambled from Ramstein, Germany to escort Air Force One after the 'Code Red' is declared.

Boeing KC-135R Stratotanker

Based on the prototype Boeing 367-80, prototype to the Boeing 707, these tankers can be seen on the ramp at Ramstein during the aborted landing.

Lined up and ready to go.

Lockheed C-141B Starlifter

This aircraft narrowly avoids a collision with Air Force One at Ramstein.

This Starlifter meets a close encounter with Air Force One.

Bell UH-1 Iroquois

UH-1D Sent from Ramstein to rescue the President from the escape pod. Although it is not impossible for a UH-1D to have been used in this capacity, at the time of filming a UH-1H or UH-1N would be more likely used by USAF rescue teams.

McDonnell Douglas KC-10 Extender

'Extender 1-0' is sent to refuel Air Force One in mid air.
