It’s Air Force One if he’s in it.

Trump is probably better off not getting the marching troops and rolling tanks.
I'd like to see:
* someone in a white shirt and black pants stands in front of the parade of tanks and cause them to stop
* Trump is so enraged at this that he rushes down into the parade, trips, and a tank (or two) accidentally rolls over him
Except there’s no parade of tanks. They are stationary.

When he's not onboard, its Special Air Mission 28000, said ''SAM Two-Eight Thousand''. If he's in an Army Aircraft (which has only happened a few times) its Army One and if he's in a civilian Aircraft, which has only once happened, with Teddy Roosevelt, they'd have to work on it, and I'm sure there is a plan somewhere, but its not Air Force One.

The best source of information in all this is FAR/AIM 2019 which I studied when it was FAR/AIM 1983, but the exact rules are set by the FAA, not the Air Force. Its an Air Traffic Control thing, not an actual airplane thing.

IIRC, if he's flying coach on your civilian Delta flight, as mentioned by Neonzx, the aircraft becomes Executive One.

Not the one in mentioned in the indictments.

That was Individual-1. You are probably right on the 'Executive One'.

This QAnon believer at the 4th of July parade thinks JFK Jr might reveal himself today: “it would be wonderful if he did.” Other QAnon fans have said they’ll wear JFK Jr masks today.

Unusual to see an empty Constitution Avenue with a military vehicle whizzing by on this 4th of July.
Looks like a lot of people already heading to SALUTE TO AMERICA at Lincoln Memorial. It will be well worth the trip and wait. See you there at 6:00 P.M. Amazing music and bands. Thank you ARMY!

A National Park Service volunteer just told me that the tanks & military equipment are all in the closed off perimeter for the president's VIPs and that the general public on the Mall will not be able to see them.
