The presidential entourage will have 40 aircraft, including the Air Force One that will ferry the president. There will be six armoured cars, including four Barack Mobiles and a Cadillac.

Cadillac is equipped with a mini communication centre to enable Obama to be in touch with the White House, US vice president and the US strategic command. It also has the US nuke launch codes and it can withstand a chemical or germ warfare and a bomb attack.

Two secret service command posts will be set up in Delhi and Mumbai to act as the communication nerve centres. These will monitor the president’s movement with real time satellite monitoring.

Three Marine One choppers will be reassembled in India to ferry the president and his family and to evacuate them in case of any emergency.

Only the best.

In this segment from National Geographic’s upcoming TV series “On Board Air Force One,” President Obama boards his first flight on Air Force One–from Chicago to Washington, D.C., when he was still president-elect. He greets the pilot and says “You’re the pilot of Air Force One? I’ve got to say, you’re out of central casting. You’re exactly what I want the pilot of Air Force One to look like. You look like Sam Shepard in ‘The Right Stuff’.”

He’s then offered his first Air Force One meal. After a quick glance at the menu, Obama says he wants “to see how you guys do a burger,” cooked medium-well, with cheddar cheese, dijon mustard (Grey Poupon–which he also likes in his tuna salad–will do), with lettuce and tomato. He also requests some salad or vegetables. When the waiter asks, “No fries?” He replies, “Oh, I’ll still take the fries.”
