Subtitle The Aircraft of the Modern U.S. Presidency

Nicholas A Veronico, Robert F. Dorr
Description Description
The presidential plane wasn’t always known as Air Force One. FDR traveled 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 administration's triumphs and tragedies, and has flown over a million miles around the globe.

On the 65th anniversary of the most famous plane in the world, and featuring new and unseen photography of the presidential aircraft, aviation expert and author Nicholas A. Veronico brings Robert F. Dorr's classic 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.
