Boeing E-4 Advanced Airborne Command Post (AACP), také Nightwatch nebo neoficiálně „doomsday aircraft“ („letadlo soudného dne“) je letadlo velení a řízení, které od roku 1974 slouží v americkém letectvu. Stroj má primárně sloužit jako mobilní velitelské stanoviště pro prezidenta Spojených států, a to hlavně v případě jaderné války. Je navrženo tak, aby odolalo elektromagnetickému pulsu jaderné exploze a zůstalo zcela neporušené. Minimálně jeden E-4B je neustále v pohotovosti, aby byl k dispozici americkému prezidentovi, ministru obrany a Hlavnímu štábu ozbrojených sil USA.

The Boeing E-4 Advanced Airborne Command Post, the current “Nightwatch” aircraft, is a strategic command and control military aircraft operated by the United States Air Force (USAF). The E-4 series was specially modified from the Boeing 747-200B for the National Emergency Airborne Command Post (NEACP) program.
