Boeing E-4B AIRBORNE COMMAND POST
The E-4B is a military version of the Boeing 747-200. It serves with the USAF as an Airborne Command Post in crisis areas. Operating as a National Airborne Operations Centre the E-4B ensures continuous Command and Control for the U.S. Government in times of war or major natural disasters, should land-based communications systems fail. In this role the aircraft provides a modern, well equipped command, control and communications centre with excellent survival characteristics. The main deck is divided into six operating areas. It can accommodate up to 114 personnel. The E-4B is fitted with defensive equipment to counter EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse) which is emitted during nuclear explosions. The aircraft's "Time on Task" can be extended up to three days with the use of air-to-air refuelling. Of the four aircraft of this type, one is constantly at the "Combat Ready" state.
