I saw her yesterday here at SAT - quite a sight. She's in pretty good shape for being such a veteran  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Hi!

Well here we have now "27000" in a pride place matching the other presidential airplanes, the VC-54, the VC-121, the VC-118, I think it's great to see our american friends preserving airplanes with history!
I hope to see it one day when I return to California!!!
regards

Old 27000 is going to the Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California. They're building a hanger for her there. I didn't think the local airport there is big enough to handle a 707. They must have plans to partly disassemble her, move by truck, then reassemble again in the hanger. Why the Reagan Library? Reagan used 27000 more often than any of the six presidents who flew her. Regards.

FlagshipAZ - if you will check the CNN address that Steinwayartist posted with this site, you will see that 27000 carried 7 presidents during her years of service, not 6 as you say. Nixon, Ford, Carter, Regan, Bush, Clinton, and George W. Bush. Yes the 747 came into being during George Blush's term, but 27000 still served as backup to Mr. Clinton and now to George W.

It really is the end of an era.
I often saw her at Brussels Airport (bringing the US delegation to NATO HQ or to meet the EU commission).
I must say however thet I prefer the B757.

Anyway, I hope they desinfect this old lady before putting her on display... after all, as you've said Skyhawk, she also served George W. Bush during her final days and we certainly don't want people to get contaminated with his ideas do we?  Wink/being sarcastic

Actually I for one, among many AMERICANS, I might add, wouldn't mind if some of George W. did rub off on her. At least it would take away some(hopefully a lot of Bill Clinton and his hideous lies!).

I believe 26000 is at the Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio...but I'm not a hundred percent certain of this. Regards.

26000, the plane that carried president Kennedy to Dallas and back, is in the Air Force Museum at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio. I boarded this aircraft and took the tour!
