The President (Reagan) has been on an Army helo before.  It was on my trip site - a flood area inspection.

I wonder what would happen if for whatever reason POTUS climbed into a cessna/piper/ultralight/ hot ait balloon to go for a ride.


Would the aircraft become 'Taxpayer One'?

Well, if the President decides he wants to drive around Washington in a specially outfitted M1A2 TUSK, I suppose that could be "Army One."

The aircraft belonged to the USMC, but had alternating Army and Marine Corps crews. I think Nixon was the last administration for which this was true.

But if it's flown by an Army crew (as was the case in this photo) it's Army One. If you don't believe me, check the National Museum of the Marine Corps.

I'm not sure why some of you are getting worked up over the terms "Marine One" and "Air Force One". They are just callsigns used by the pilots once the Old Man is aboard.  The aircraft are generally called by a different name/callsign for roughly >80% of the general comms/references to it.  Its the general public that uses these names more than the people that work with them.

I'm on a milk run, We land in BFE. The aircrew walks off and say they'll be back soon.

three hours later, someone boards and asks us WTF we're doing on the plane.

Angrily, we tell him we're waiting for the aircrew.

"Haven't you heard? Delta's on strike!"

Its not as if anyone is is going to call the PRESUS on a radio.  There are well known callsigns that are sometimes used to refer to the PRESUS in radio traffic.... they are no secret.

The real answer is that the Army is too busy fighting wars and protecting this country.  The Marines have experience guarding the Navy Captain's mess so they were a shoo in for the contract to be the President's chauffer.  

The Marines are OK for flying around DC, guarding Navy ships and protecting fat ass embassy workers but if you want to take Baghdad by force you had better call the US Army.  When you call be sure to ask for the extention for the 3rd ID.

It tells me that when the threat of German U-boats caused FDR to stop using the presidential yacht when he wanted to get away from the White House, they sent the existing Navy crew ashore to operate Camp David rather than transfer the operation to an Army unit.

When Bush flew aboard the carrier in the S-3, the plane was called Navy-1... I remember because they interviewed the pilot who said he got a kick out of the change in call-sign.

It's only Marine One because it is a Marine crew that flies and operates it. If it was an Army crew and pilots the Helo would be called Army One.

Marine's aren't the only ones with Helicopters...... He wouldn't have to just travel in a Army tank for him to travel with the call sign "Army One"

Stop it with the pissing contest. US Marines and US Army ARE the two most well trained and well equipped bad ass ground forces on the planet. We both have a real enough to fight, and not amongst each other. Army Infantry is bad ass just like Marine Infantry is. We're both very good at kicking ass.
