Description

The presidential plane wasn't always known as Air Force One. FDR travelled in the Guess Where II, a transport version of the heavy bomber four-engine Liberator. Later presidential aircraft included the Dixie Clipper and Sacred Cow (FDR), Independence (Truman), Columbine I and II (Eisenhower), followed by Air Force One. For the last sixty years Air Force One has seen every president and first lady through each administrations triumphs and tragedies, and has flown over a million miles around the globe. Featuring new and unseen photography of the presidential aircraft, aviation expert and author Nicholas A. Veronico brings the story of the mighty aircraft up to date; detailing how the plane has adapted to the digital age, and what to look forward to as Boeing updates the aircraft once more for 2024. Get ready to fly!
