Several Doomsday planes took off in the United States moments before President Donald Trump announced on Twitter that his wife Melania and himself had tested positive for the Coronavirus.
President Trump has meanwhile been transferred to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, the US Army’s flagship medical hospital.
The Doomsday plane is an unofficial denomination of a class of aircraft which is used as an Airborne Command Post in an event of nuclear war, disaster or other large scale conflict that threatens key military and government infrastructure.
The planes, while not technically secret, are rarely mentioned; the Air Force, for example, will not even publicly acknowledge owning some of them. These multiple airborne command posts were long considered the best chance for a Cold War president to survive a nuclear attack.
The jet’s crews also use traditional analog flight instruments to navigate as they are less susceptible to cyberattack.
Unlike the ceremonial and comfort-focused Air Force One, the doomsday planes are flying war rooms staffed by dozens of military analysts, strategists and communication aides who would guide the president through the first days of a nuclear war.
US Strategic Command said in a statement on Friday however the timing was “purely coincidental.”
