Civilian Aircraft Around Las Vegas, Aircraft Around Las Vegas

Out and about in the desert and mountains around Las Vegas, a variety for flying machines may fly over your head and intrude upon your solitude. However, learning to identify aircraft in flight adds an odd twist to enjoying the outdoors while hiking and birding around Las Vegas -- how many species and varieties can you list?

The Boeing VC-25 aircraft is the version of the Boeing 747-200B that is used to transport the U.S. President. There are two VC-25 aircraft, one with tail number 28000; the other carries tail number 29000. When the president is aboard, the designation "Air Force One" is used for the callsign of the aircraft.
