VC-25A Air Force I's primary function is to provide air transport for the president of the United States. On September 6, 1990, the first VC-25A with tail number 28000, flew as "Air Force One", transporting President George Bush to Kansas, Florida and back to Washington, D.C. A second VC-25A with tail number 29000 transported President Bill Clinton and former Presidents Carter and Bush to Israel for the funeral of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. The VC-25A will usher presidential travel into the 21st century, being distinctively known as "Air Force One."
