All that was missing was the milkshake!

For President Barack Obama’s inaugural flight on Air Force One – taken and filmed when he was still president-elect – he was greeted by a pilot he called “straight out of central casting” and treated to dinner from a select menu.

His meal for the Chicago to Washington, D.C., flight? A medium-well cheeseburger with the fixings, and some fries, of course!

To further personalize his order, Obama requests Dijon mustard (yes, Grey Poupon is fine), lettuce, tomato and some salad or vegetables (in addition to the fries) on the side.

These intimate moments and more will premiere in National Geographic‘s new TV series On Board Air Force One beginning Jan. 25, at 8 p.m.
