C-32A AIR FORCE TWO PROGRAM


The C-32A fleet of 8 aircraft is used to transport the vice president and other high level government officials.  L-3 Communications refurbishes and upgrades electronic systems on the aircraft at Majors Field. After the aircraft are stripped of most paint they are towed to the back gate and put on public display for some kind of testing under the long cable that originates in the small mobile home. There's lots of high level radio interference you can collect on a scanner while the airplanes are there also.
