A mistake in a tweet sent by President Trump that referenced “Aircraft One” forced the Commander-in-Chief to delete the message.
Tweeting about Thursday’s Fourth of July celebration in Washington, D.C., Trump accidentally referred to “Air Force One” as “Aircraft One.” The aforementioned title is a call signal for any plane that carries the president.
“People are coming from far and wide to join us today and tonight for what is turning out to be one of the biggest celebrations in the history of our Country, SALUTE TO AMERICA, an all day event at the Lincoln Memorial, culminating with large scale flyovers of the most modern and advanced aircraft anywhere in the World,” President Trump wrote in a two-part tweet. “Perhaps even Aircraft One will do a low & loud sprint over the crowd.”
Twitter users snapped back, pointing out the incorrect name. The president deleted his tweet, sending out a revised version.
However, “#AircraftOne” was already gaining traction on Twitter. More than one person cracked Russia jokes, pointing to an Amazon documentary called “Aircraft One” about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s private plane.
Not entirely sure why Vladimir Putin’s loaning President Trump Russia’s official presidential plane for his #TrumpOfJuly Re-Election Rally and Military Dance-Off Extravaganza, but at least it’s one thing we’re not paying for- well not directly anyway #AircraftOne pic.twitter.com/RvX2OxG3Ay— Kevin Allen (@kevinjallen) July 4, 2019
