Air Force One: Behind the Cockpit

Documentary about the £350million Boeing 747 that flies the US President around the globe. With the current Air Force One showing signs of age, Donald Trump is the first leader in 30 years to order an entirely new plane. Controversially, he has also decided to change its distinctive light blue livery - first approved by John F Kennedy - for a new colour scheme that he believes is `more American". Contributors including former White House chief of staff Andrew Card and former chief steward Howie Franklin share recollection of an aircraft forever associated with moments of victory, terror, tragedy and shame.

Genre: Documentary
