The original Air Force One airplane still exists but is just sitting in the Arizona Desert waiting for somebody to step up to the plate and restore her to it’s original state.

I find it odd that no one has put up the money, estimated to be a measly $1.5 million to restore this historic piece of American history. Actually, with all the money that government wastes on useless studies and programs you would think that it’s a no-brainer for the government to pay to restore this beauty.

The airplane carried President Dwight Eisenhower back in 1953-54 and has an interesting history to say the least. This is the plane that set the precedent for all Presidential planes to be named AIR FORCE ONE!

From FOX: 

Alicia Acuna explained on “America’s Newsroom” how the plane has slipped through the cracks and ended up at the Marana Regional Airport in the Sonoran Desert in Arizona.

“It was sold as a package deal by the Air Force in 1970 to a man named Mel Chrysler, who needed planes for crop dusting,” Acuna said.

She stated that the plane, which is a Lockheed Constellation, didn’t have any official markings like what is seen today on presidential aircraft.

“So no one knew what he had,” Acuna said. “It’s the only Air Force One not in a museum, and it holds a very important place in aviation history.”

She explained that one evening in 1953, the president was flying in the plane over New York City as Air Force Flight 8610 when it had a near miss with Eastern Airlines Flight 8610. That incident prompted the creation of a unique call sign for the presidential aircraft.
