Wiki 24
This article's subject relates to Season 5 of 24.

Marine One is the call sign used by any aircraft of the United States Marine Corps carrying the President. It is a title normally bestowed on a helicopter, as the USMC has the responsibility of transporting the President by helicopter.

At the end of Day 5, President Charles Logan was heading to Point Mugu Naval Air Station to pay his respects to David Palmer. Jack Bauer asked Aaron Pierce if Marine One was taking him to the airfield, but Aaron told him that due to the last minute nature of the trip, a reduced detachment Navy helicopter would be taking him instead of Marine One. ("5:00am-6:00am")

Background information and notes[]

5x02 Suvarov chopper

Suvarov arriving

  • Marine One is generally a Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King. Marine squadron, HMX-1 is the primary unit used for presidential and VIP transportation by the United States Military, along with the two VC-25 airliners (also more commonly known as "Air Force One").
  • Footage of the helicopter traditionally used for Marine One was shown during the scene of Yuri Suvarov arriving at the retreat in Day 5: 8:00am-9:00am. However, as the President was not on board, this vehicle would not use the Marine One callsign.
