The Very First Air Force One Is Just Wasting Away In Arizona

the_first_air_force

The very first Air Force one now resides at the Marana Regional Airport in a field in Arizona. Named Columbine II it became the official presidential aircraft in 1953 before being replaced in 1954 and then eventually retired in 1968. This is the type of thing that belongs in the National Air and Space Museum, not in a field somewhere.
