Default JC Wings B747-8 Presidential JC2CCA066

Another one to be added to my growing Presidential Fleet:

JC Wings
Boeing 747-8 Air China
Reg# B-2479
Item: JC2CCA066
1/200 Scale

This is the Chinese version of Air Force One: a brand-new US$380 million 747-8 intercontinental airliner, with registration No. B-2479, which first took flight from Boeing’s Everett plant in November 2014.

It underwent thorough cabin modifications in Hamburg, Germany from May 2015 and flew back home for further testing in October 2016.

Besides a luxurious master suite/executive office for the top leader and the first lady, a cavernous main lounge for ministers and top aides, a medical center, a secret service command room, etc, it’s believed that the new jet, already called the “flying Zhongnanhai”, will have all the security and communication features to ensure real-time command and conferencing and defense against threats from air or the ground. JC Wings made a lovely 747-8 Model and she looks beautiful. Personally I don't like the new display stand though, I feel like it's less stable but that's my opinion.

Here's some pictures:

I picked one of these up for $80 on amazon a few weeks ago. It’s really a lovely aircraft. The stand is slightly wobbly but I still think it’s cool. Great pictures and back story of the aircraft!

I would personally take 747s anytime over any other twin yet. A step down to me for Japan Government. Each to their own... I love that picture with both Air China 747s displayed together! Can you tell me more about your Oxcart project and Habu planes. Which manufacturer, particular plane models are they and scale 1/72 I guess... I am thinking on getting a few of Oxcart and SR71 models in the future...
