The PRESIDENTIAL PLANE (Paperback)
The Presidential Plane
A pictorial history of aircraft used by our presidents, and of the units serving them.
For three decades, the White House has been sprouting wings. Six Presidential planes classed "Official" and some others too colorful to be ignored, have shared an exciting part not only in history in the making, but in history in motion.
Since 1943, Presidential conferences have often been held, and decisions made, miles overhead.
Far from routine or commonplace, incidents aboard have often been frightening, dramatic, even humorous. Recognizing that fact, hundreds of hours of research and extensive tape interviews with veterans of those flights have produced this first pictorial history of those Presidential planes.
Because a picture really is worth a thousand words, a profuse number of illustrations has been carefully selected from hundreds made available that best supplement the written record of those interesting events.
The Presidential Plane is educational, but that won't stop you from thoroughly enjoying every page of it
