It's a hoax.

The pranksters responsible for the grainy, two-minute Web video employed by a New York fashion company revealed Friday how they pulled it off: a rented 747 in California painted to look almost exactly like Air Force One.

"I wanted to do something culturally significant, wanted to create a real pop-culture moment," said Marc Ecko of Marc Ecko Enterprises. "It's this completely irreverent, over-the-top thing that could really never happen: this five-dollar can of paint putting a pimple on this Goliath."

"It's not cheap," he said. "You have to be rich."

Yahoo! isn't like CNN or Fox News. They're not bought out by the US Government.

Would of been cool if it was real However no one could get that close to that plane. I wouldn't even try it be to scared of having a sniper spot me and think i'm planting a bomb or somthing and get shot.

To distro I honsetly saw the video and that was my first thought that can't be real. For one that plane wouldn't be in the open! It'd most likely be in a hanger with armed gaurds all over it.

Yeah, if it was real, there would be guards all over it, a bunch of gangsters with spray-paint cans couldn't even get close to it without getting shot at.
