AF1 or the Air Force One is the official airplane for the President of the United States of America. Since the creation of the presidential fleet, some planes have been named as Air Force One. The Air Force One who is having the maximum speed of 600 miles per hour has many stories to tell. Once when F-16 fighter planes were escorting the president's plane while in flight on September 11, they faced a challenge to keep up with Air Force One and had to ask the pilots to slow down.
Here's the catch, Air Force One is not one, but two planes. Yes, that's correct. The cost of both the jet plane is $660 million of the taxpayer money. But, wait, this isn't over yet. It takes more than $179, 750 per hour to take these planes out for a spin.
