I just saw Thirteen Days today and there is a scene where the president is getting off his jumbo jet. It's a four engined airplane with no upper deck, so I was wondering what it was. The movie was supposed to take place in 1962, so I'm trying to figure out if it's historically accurate or not.

It was the thirteen days in October 1962, the "Cuban Crises". Robert F. Kennedy wrote a book titled "Thirteen Days", I assume the film was somehow based on RFK's report (sorry guys, I haven't seen the film yet; it takes some time until it get's here across the Atlantic). John F. Kennedy had the B707 as Air Force One then. The B707s were used until George C. Bush received the B747s.
