It goes by the call sign "Air Force One" when the President of the United States is aboard, but Wednesday afternoon it was just one of the two Boeing VC-25s in the Air Force fleet when it landed at Dobbins Air Reserve.

A spokesperson at Dobbins tells FOX 5 News that specially modified Boeing 747 landed there for refueling and logistical work. They say no one was getting out or being picked up.

We learned that this plane is currently serving as part of President Obama's trip to Charlotte for the Democratic National Convention.
