Project 747-300 "Airforce one"

"Air Force One" in the AIR FORCE CENTER

The AIR FORCE CENTER and his SimCenter get another attraction, the cockpit of the 747, the epitome of aviation, comes in a first step of coarse remodeling in Hall 9. This is a 747-300, exactly the same cockpit layout which Swissair once flew and still is in operation by the American government as the Airforce one! The 747 existed originally in different versions, -100, -200, -300, -400, -8 etc.


With the acquisition of this unique complete cockpit a long-cherished wish came true: the Jumbo comes in our SimCenter. We are proud that we have managed after years of preparation to enrich our SimCenter in the AIR FORCE CENTER with this new attraction.


This cockpit will like all other exhibits in the AIR FORCE CENTER not simply serve as "eyecatcher", but as a simulator.


What are the next steps around this Jumbo project?

The AIR FORCE CENTER as a meeting place offers to all visitors the opportunity to be part of this project. During the renovation, it is possible to accompany the project's progress and to stay informed directly on place. For aviation enthusiasts and those who want to be so, there is an opportunity for taking photographs inside and outside the cockpit.


Where does our Airforce One come from?

Our Airforce One comes from England, Kemble and had its last flight on June 27, 2015. It flew its lifetime for Qantas and has exactly the same cockpit as the Airforce One! The cockpit of the 747-338 which is now in the AIR FORCE CENTER is corresponding exactly to the Airforce One in its characteristics and will take off again as Queen of the Skies.

A few impressions of the B747-300, which was formerly almost 30 years for the Qantas in use. Soon the cockpit will experience a new adventure. Let yourself be surprised.

The AIR FORCE CENTER DÜBENDORF is the new homebase of a 747-300 «Airforce one» Flight Simulator.

Mit dem Jumbo-Jet jetzt selber in Dübendorf landen

«Ich nehme jetzt den Autopiloten raus, der Jumbo gehört alleine Dir», sagt Ruedi «Sunny» Rinderknecht drei Meilen vor der Pistenschwelle 29 in Dübendorf. Ich fasse das Steuerhorn ganz sanft und bewege es kaum. Der Autopilot hat die 270 Tonnen schwere Boeing 747-338 stabil auf den Gleitweg gesetzt, Korrekturen sind nicht notwendig. Die Piste kommt näher. «Jetzt Gas raus und leicht ziehen», sagt Sunny, ich gehorche und ... lesen Sie weiter (german only)
