Air Force One

Today’s post takes a look at Air Force One from the Reagan Era. This airplane now resides at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California, USA.

Here’s a lock at the cockpit, which is quite primitive compared to the panels in today’s aircraft.

Lots of analog instrumentation there. Perfectly functional as the many years of service proves. Inside the passenger area, you’ll find rather spartan accommodations for a head of state. Sorry, I wasn’t able to snap any photos of that area.

If you enjoy vintage aircraft and American History, this is definitely worth a visit.
