Boeing 777-300ER: The next Air India One aircraft

Prime Minister of India, a jet setter Narendra Modi will soon get his very own, state-of-the-art Air Force One aircraft, the Air India One. The advanced Boeing 777-300 ER flying fortress aircraft, made of special radar absorbing metal alloys and fitted with the latest in technology is akin to US President Barack Obama’s Boeing 747-200 Air Force one, and is even capable of dodging missiles and will be maintained by the Indian Air Force. The Indian Prime Minister was previously traveling in an aging Boeing 747-200 and has made as many as forty foreign visits in it since the two years he’s been in office.

Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar has stated that he is likely to finalize the deal to procure two brand new Boeing 777-300 ERs in the upcoming Defence Acquisition Council meeting for the safe and comfortable travel of top Indian dignitaries and officials. With PM Modi being on the radar of various terror groups around the world, the new VVIP Air India One will be equipped with plush interiors and fitted with high-tech security modules. It will have air-to-air refuelling facilities and can launch pre-emptive retaliations in case of an air attack.
