Wherever Air Force One is in the world, an E-4B Doomsday plane isn’t far away.
There are four E-4B ‘Nightwatch’ planes in the fleet that are made up of specially modified Boeing 747s that follow the President of the United States, particularly when he goes overseas.
The planes are outfitted as complete command centers for the president and his top officials including the Secretary of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the case of nuclear war or national emergency.
These aircraft have unique capabilities that cannot be duplicated by any other aircraft that the Air Force use.
