Nice piece! They gave alot more away about the plane than I would have thought.

Here's my question--why did they opt for the 747 classic as opposed to the -400? Weren't -400s the latest and greatest in 1990ish? The cockpit itself of AF1 looks at a glace almost exactly the same as the 1960s technology I fly. It must be difficult finding good parts such as those old school EPR gauges. I would have expected to see substantial upgrades up front (aside from the EADIs/EHSIs).
