ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE (AP) — A president, former president and possible future president are among those traveling aboard Air Force One to South Africa.

The high-powered traveling partners came together for a transcontinental flight Monday to a memorial service honoring former South African President Nelson Mandela.

The unusual manifest required some creative seating arrangements.

The Obamas occupied the president's regular cabin at the front of the plane. Former President George W. Bush and wife Laura were settled in nearby in the plane's medical unit. And former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was given a spot in a cabin normally occupied by senior staff.

The plane's main conference room served as a gathering spot for the former president and three first ladies, with the current commander-in-chief popping in between in-flight meetings and calls.
