Washington - A solar-powered supersonic combusting ramjet built from sustainable recycled carbon fiber and organic fairtrade hessian interior has been chosen as the new presidential runabout.
The latest US Air Force acquisition will be a variant of the traditional supersonic Scramjet whose hair brading - uh, air breathing! - jet engine is capable of 100 Mach.
Latest International Space Station technology means each of the $950m six-strong fleet of Presidential planes will be capable of circling the globe for hours at a time.
"It means the President will be safe for up to 60 hours at a time," a NASA Jet Convulsion Laboratory technician explained, "should he ever feel the need to go round and round in pointless airborne circles during some sort of crisis."
The new Scare Force One will be making its maiden flight later this year when Obama travels on holiday to Hawaii.
Aides of the President say that reports of an onboard swimming pool, ski slope, nine hole golf course and 100ft long champagne bar are 'slight exaggerations'.
Michelle Obama's mother is 109.
