Executive Two


Executive Two

Executive Two is the call sign designated any United States civilian aircraft when the Vice President of the United States is on board. Typically, however, the Vice President flies in military aircraft that are under the command of the Air Mobility Command's 89th Airlift Wing, based at Andrews Air Force Base in Suitland, Maryland.

One notable exception was when Nelson Rockefeller was named Gerald Ford's Vice President in 1974. He owned his own Gulfstream airplane which he preferred to the DC-9 which was then being used as Air Force Two. Being a private plane, the Gulfstream's call sign was Executive Two when Rockefeller was on board. cite book
