I just found about Presidents Park, an unusual roadside attraction at Williamsburg, VA. Among the 18-foot high presidential busts is a fuselage section representing one of the presidential Boeing 707s. From the few pictures on the Web, I have found, I have determined the following:

* The airframe (nose section) is authentic
* It was an old Boeing 707 (the four thrust levers in the cockpit give that away).

Does anyone know the identity of this airframe? Perhaps it's one of the old VC-137s that was not preserved? Or an old airliner, with the fittings of one of the VC-137 interiors?

I doubt it is one of the VC-137s. Boeing and a park in Arizona each have one, the Reagan liberary has one, and the USAF Muesum has one. That is all four VC-137s. there were also two C-137Bs used for passenger transport below the VIP level but I think they are at AMRAC.

Actually there were 7 VC-137s - 3 VC-137Bs and 4 VC-137Cs

Of the B's 1 went to the Pima Air Museum, 1 went to Museum Of Flight at Boeing Field, and I believe the third was scrapped.

Regarding the Cs 26000 went to the USAF Museum, 27000 went to the Reagan Library, 974 was scrapped, and 973 is now a E-8. Both 974 & 973 were acquired second hand.
