With this historical event taking place, a lot of aircraft is required to move two leaders to one country.
Kim Force One
We will start with North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un.
Supreme Leader Kim’s fleet of aircraft ranged from the Soviet Built IL62, to the Boeing 747-400 which he took.
Supreme Leader Un flew on B-2447, this Boeing 747-400 is known for transporting China’s heads of State including President Jinping of China.
This 747 can be fitted with communication, special needs for VIPS ect. This is China’s Version of Air Force One.
The 747 flew from Pyongyang to Beijing as China Air 122. This is the typical flight number between these two cities, as it cross Beijing it changed to Air China 061 and remained over Chinese Air Space as long as possible.
Air China also allowed one of their Airbus A330s for this historical event. The A330 flew Top North Korean Officials and security details from Pyongyang to Singapore.
Air Koryo’s IL-76
Another aircraft that was spotted was Air Koryo’s IL-76, this brought Supreme Leader Kim’s vehicles which a Mercedes Benz limo was spotted being unloaded. This aircraft stopped in Guangzhou, China for fuel.
North Korea’s IL-62
North Korea’s Il-62 also brought in North Korean delegates and security.
Now Let’s look at what the United States brought
President Trump arrived into Singapore with Air Force One, VC25A, a very highly modified Boeing 747-200. Their path was not as typical since it stopped in Greece.

The United States also is sending a C-32, commonly known as “Air Force Two” although it stopped at Ramstein Air Base in Germany for an overnight fuel stop. The U.S. airlift contingent, including and the myriad air lifters used to carry the presidential motorcade and helicopters from HMX-1, including ‘Marine One,’ will be using Paya Lebar Air Base in Singapore instead of Changi Airport. The two airfields are quite close to each other but geographically splitting up the North Korean and American delegations has been a common theme when it comes to the planning of the summit.
An E4B Advanced Airborne Command Post also has been deployed, The E-4B will not land at Paya Lebar, it will stage out of another location within a couple hundred miles of the President’s destination as is the common protocol.
I’d like thank @Captain_JR for making these times, if you are interested when the two leaders plan to meet!
