Post Air India One gets parking slot near Air Force One

It was a rare sight when Air India One - which carries Prime Minister Narendra Modi across the globe -- and the US President's iconic air transporter Air Force One were seen parked nearby at the airport of this Turkish resort town hosting the G20 Summit.
Air India One, or AIC001 the call-sign by which it is known, last night brought Modi here from London for the meeting of the leaders of 20 top economies of the world. Air Force One arrived at the Antalya airport this morning with US President Barack Obama on board.
The two planes were parked in close proximity at the Antalya International Airport, 13 km northeast of the centre of this coastal town.
The planes that carried other world leaders were also parked nearby in the section of the airport reserved for the Summit leaders.
Air India One equipped with jamming equipment, anti-missile systems and air-to-air refuelling facility is operated by the Indian Air Force (IAF).
