Many Air Forces in Europe are currently getting a modern fleet of fighter jets. Mostly 4.5 generation or even 5th generation fighter jets are being bought at the moment.

The largest fighter jet fleet by 2020 will be the Turkish Air Force: It currently operates 215 F-16 Fighting Falcon, and a couple of F-4s and F-5s. Furthermore, Turkey wants to order as many as 116 F-35A, it is a level 3 partner in the Joint Strike Fighter program. Turkey is also thinking about developing an own fighter jet with Sweden’s Saab or South Korea’s Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) to be less dependent of the United States in the future. The current Turkish Air Force fighter jet fleet consists of US fighter aircraft only.

From the current Russian Fighter aircraft, many will be retired by 2020, among them older MiG-29 Fulcrum, Su-24 Fencers and Su-27 Flankers. Those are the fighter jets operated in large numbers today. At the same time, the Su-25 Frogfoot and the MiG-31 Foxhound will be modernized.

Technically, Air Force One is used to describe any Air Force aircraft carrying the President — but since the middle of the 20th century, it has been standard practice to refer to specific planes that are equipped to transport the Commander-in-Chief. Today, this name refers to one of two highly customized Boeing 747-200B series aircraft, which carry the tail codes 28000 and 29000. The Air Force designation for the aircraft is VC-25A.

Air Force One is one of the most recognizable symbols of the presidency, spawning countless references not just in American culture but across the world. Emblazoned with the words “United States of America,” the American flag, and the Seal of the President of the United States, it is an undeniable presence wherever it flies.

Capable of refueling midair, Air Force One has unlimited range and can carry the President wherever he needs to travel. The onboard electronics are hardened to protect against an electromagnetic pulse, and Air Force One is equipped with advanced secure communications equipment, allowing the aircraft to function as a mobile command center in the event of an attack on the United States.
