A nice look back at the first aircraft with the callsign Air Force One, its history, and its final home. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

Nice little piece of history there, very cool.

Yeah, nice piece of history, including the origin of the famous callsign. Hope they make it with the restoration project.
