You’re standing under the belly of this beautiful beast. These enormous wheels are built to withstand the incredible impact of Air Force One when she touches down.
The airplane is so big that it actually needs a longer runway for takeoff — many airports can’t even accommodate it.
Feel free to reach up and touch it. Touch the cool metal.
Imagine it taxiing down the runway, gaining speed, lifting off — and these massive wheels retracting up into the plane.
Our next stop is directly behind the plane. So walk underneath it, toward the back of the aircraft. Look for the Audio Tour sign #5 behind the tail.
