350,000 Active Duty people.
In the USAF, there are about 3,700 active duty colonels and 1,500 in the reserves.
There are two that the president uses currently, highly customized Boeing 747-200B series aircraft with serial numbers "28000" and "29000". That is sort of true, but not qui…te 100% correct. Airforce one is any airplane that has the President in at the moment. When President Johnson took the oath of office, while flying, the plane changed it's call once he was sworn in. There are two aircraft that are used as Airforce One.
In the House of Representatives. o.O
They used the Bell Uh-1 "Iroquois" in Vietnam, and it was introduced in 1959. You can currently buy one for around $850,000 to $1,000,000, depending on the age and condition o…f it. The civilian version of the Iroquois is the Bell 204/205 model.

Soldiers in the USAF are called "Airmen". See US Air Force for a current strength number.
Not an answer but which Air Force? US, UK, France, Germany, Japan?? For the US Air Force, the Air Force Association publishes a magazine called "Air Force". Once a year, the…y dedicate an issue with all the facts on the USAF, including history of aces and names of top ranking Generals and Sergeant of the AF. It usually lists the types and number of aircraft operated by the USAF. Also, recommend "Jane's All the World's Aircraft". Another source is the magazine "Air Force" that is published for members of the Air Force Association but is available in many libraries. Once a year, it publishes a large issue that includes a summary of the aircraft, personnel, generals etc.
Thrust, Drag, Lift, Weight (Gravity).
Of course they do!
The US Army had the largest helicopter force in the world during the Vietnam War. And flew a lengthly list of different types of choppers during the conflict: Sioux (whirlybir…d), CH-19, CH-21 Shawnee, CH-47 Chinook, CH-34, UH-1 Iroquois (Huey), AH-1 Cobra, OH-58 Kiowa, OH-6 Cayuse...to name a few. The US Navy flew CH-53 Sea Stallions, while the US Marines preferred the CH-46 Sea Knight (which looks like an army CH-47 Chinook). The US Air Force flew Jolly Green Giants and Flying Cranes, both of which were versions of the US Navy CH-53 Sea Stallion. The mission of USAF chopper airmen was to rescue downed US fliers (jet pilots) and recover shot down US aircraft (mainly spotter planes and other helicopters...there usually wasn't too much left of jets when they crashed). All branches at one time or another flew the US Army's UH-1 Iroquois (Huey) in Vietnam...especially the US Navy & Marine Corps. The USMC also flew the US Army's AH-1 Cobra in Vietnam. NOT to be confused with the current SUPER Cobra flown by 21st century US Marines...that craft has TWO engines. The Vietnam Cobra, which was the world's first "designed & built" fielded combat Attack Helicopter had only ONE engine. So, the short version of answering your question is: The men that flew helicopters in the Vietnam War were from all branches of the US military...but primarily from the US Army.
What is the salary of a Lieutenant Colonel Helicopter Pilot with 40 years in the Canadian Air Force?
First of all, there are no serving members of the Canadian Armed Forces with 40 years of service. The longest someone can serve is between 20 and 30 years. Most will serve 20 …years and sometimes, for exceptional reasons or because of special occupations, up to 30 years.
There are to many to list but if I had to guess it would be the 100,000+ area... Every regulation, career field, and local members have their own acronyms.
When their is a gravitational force on the earth then why does helicopters and aeroplanes do not fall while they are in the air?
Because they have mechanical structures, powered by motors using the solar energy stored in oil, that can push against air, thereby generating forces that can be directed …opposite to the force of gravity and work against it. You might just as well ask: "When there is a gravitational force on the Earth, then how can I walk up the stairs from the first floor to the second floor ?" I would have answered: Because you have mechanical structures, made of bones and powered by muscles using the solar energy stored in food, that can push against the floor, thereby generating forces that can be directed opposite to the force of gravity and work against it.
