In 1980, the newly-resident USAF held an air show at Fairford, allowing public access the previous day, when I took this picture. This 1963 VC-140 had been President Johnson’s personal transport at Andrews AFB in the sixties before transferring to the 435th Tactical Airlift Wing at Ramstein in 1977. It subsequently served at Scott AFB, Illinois, in aeromedical and facilities checking roles before retirement after a spar crack in 1989. In ‘92 it was acquired for static display at Hill Aerospace Museum.
