The Doomsday American aircraft "Night Watch" showed inside

The American Doomsday aircraft Boeing E-4B Nightwatch "Night Watch" for the first persons of the United States showed from the inside. The video is posted on the AIRBOYD YouTube channel.


The video showed the zones of the upper and middle decks, in particular, the meeting room of the command. Here, every workplace is equipped with computers, communications. In these compartments you can relax, there are sleeping places. Also shown is a kitchen providing meals on board the aircraft.

Aircraft "Night Watch" (Nightwatch) E-4B created on the basis of the passenger airliner Boeing 747 (Doomsday aircraft). In the event of a nuclear conflict, it is on this plane that the President of the United States and the Secretary of Defense are supposed to be stationed. The aircraft is the command post for the leadership of the retaliatory nuclear strike and is capable of being in the air for at least a week with refueling. Since 1974, the US Air Force has four Night Watch patrols.


One of the four E-4Bs is always fully ready to take off within minutes. During the president’s overseas trips, the Doomsday Aircraft accompanies him, as does the adjutant with the “nuclear suitcase”. If the head of state or the head of the Pentagon is killed, there is a scenario for instant transfer of command of the troops to another senior official.

Currently, the Pentagon intends to replace immediately three types of air command posts that are in service with the US Army: Night Watch, Board Number Two, and Attack and Go. It is specified that a single air platform will be selected for this.

      I wonder which of the Russian oligarchs will buy used these aircraft? smile

        I would bet on the Saudi sheikhs.
        In the mid-90s, yes, Russians would buy it.
        Now a little mentality has become different. In private planes they do not appreciate twisting, and the performance characteristics - speed, range and ability to land on small airfields.
        Steeply measured in the size of personal plots in prestigious countries and at the cost of yachts. A plane is no longer a show off, but a means of transportation.

    The new platform is likely to become a Dreamliner, it can hang even longer in the sky.

      Two engines? I can’t believe it.

        I explain the slow-witted: a four-engine aircraft is considered more reliable.

          No longer.

          Reliability is already measured not only by quantity, but also by quality.

            “Already” is from the time of the stone ax.
            Quality has always been relevant.
            And for equipment operating in a combat or other extreme situation, it is very important to duplicate vital systems and nodes.
            Engines are those critical nodes that duplicate each other in this case.

              Now tell this to the engineers, who for the last American and British and French engines give 50000 hours of resource and 2000-3000 interservice intervals.
              And they really work according to such regulations.


              And to our engine operators who give 5000 hours of a resource and 4-8 hours of an interservice interval.

              Provided that the Americans / Angles / Franks have really reliable engines with extraordinary powers.
              And we have PD-14 for 30 years in development, if you count all of its unborn predecessors.
              And about the PD-35 for the next 10 years not even to dream.

                Just don’t fall off the chair when I remind you that this is not about the civilian side.
                What does the resource have to do with it? Did I write something about the unreliability of engines?
                I wrote about the special requirements for special-purpose aircraft.

      I'm actually disappointed.
      I hope that on the basis of the new platform a new workplace of the president will be designed and implemented.
      On the desktop, it must be mandatory: a keyboard and two large buttons, red and blue, separately standing (at a distance of at least 20 inches from each other).
      Red - to launch perfect, smart and beautiful missiles.

      Rather, the 777-9x Boin with a flight range of almost 20000 kilometers.

        Vadim hi . The fact that Boeing is most likely
        The presidential board No. 1 of the USA is the Boeing VC-25 created on the basis of the Boeing 747-8

          You wanted to say that the next one will be built based on the B747-800? These are then built on a base of -200.
          Surprisingly, the secret service is suitable for the A380, it is simply the largest in internal volumes. Of course, this will not happen and the only candidate B747-800. Well, so that they don’t mess with the cable laying, otherwise the last time Boeing re-laid their two goals

      Yes, for God's sake, look at health. This is a latrine of the American side No. 1, probably on (Nightwatch) E-4B similar

    One of the four E-4Bs is always fully ready to take off within minutes.

    This of course the author has slightly thickened. But within an hour it will fly up. To take off within a few minutes, the engines are warmed up, the crew on the ground.

      These airplanes seem to be supposed to be in the air every day on a shift shift; one sat down the second took off.

        They are intended for senior management. Passenger with the team took in the air.
        Well, at the expense of the article, compare this with https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_E-4
        Almost literal reprint.

    Interestingly, will water also be blown up during refueling? They would have equipped all this on board an amphibious aircraft, then just a little could have been quickly moved aboard a submarine.

    Interestingly, and after showing from the inside, someone breathed a sigh of relief? Yes, even turn inside out, but it is better that these aircraft are not required.

    Interesting information:

    The first three E-4As were built on the basis of the Boeing 747-200 glider at the Boeing factory in 1974-1978. In 1979, the modernized E-4B was built. Outwardly, it was distinguished by the presence of a large fairing that covered the satellite communications antennas on top of the fuselage above the upper deck. In 1980, all three E-4A were modernized and became known as E-4B. All aircraft equipment is protected against electromagnetic pulse (EMP) of a nuclear explosion. There is a system of filtering from radioactive dust in the systems of intake and air conditioning for ventilation of the cabin and compartments.

    The price of the aircraft was $ 250 million and the E-4B was in second place among the most expensive aircraft (B-2 Spirit later took the first place - $ 2200 million for one aircraft). The crew of each aircraft is from 60 to 114 people and outnumbers the crews of any other aircraft of the US Air Force.

    The aircraft is equipped with equipment for receiving fuel from tanker aircraft. With periodic refueling in the air, the aircraft can stay in the air for a week (maybe more). The duration of his duty in the air is limited only by the working life of the oil in the engine oil systems. For a full refueling of the E-4B in the air, two fully refueling KC-135 refueling aircraft are needed.
