Minor nit: The tail # was 72-7000 vs 62-7000.

Good to see she got a good home.

It would be worth a trip to the Library just to see the aircraft. Trust me, the folks who worked on that jet when it was flying took a lot of pride in their work. Hopefully the folks who setup the display did the same.

I can't find a recent picture of the jet. I hope they put it back in the AF-1 scheme vs. the austerity scheme it had when it was moved into the building.
