Kennedy – Johnson Airforce One SAM 26000

Kennedy - Johnson Airforce One

Yesterday my son and grandson went with me over to Dayton Ohio the the National Airforce Museum. If you ever get a chance – you must go. One of the greatest thrills for me is going through the SAM 26000 that carried the body of President John F. Kennedy back from Dallas and saw President Johnson being sworn in with Jackie Kennedy in her blood stained outfit get sworn in as the next President. You are able to walk right through the aircraft which is amazing knowing the history of the plane. As you exit there is a partition that was cut so that they could fit the casket of President Kennedy into the seating area and removed 4 rows of seats. Very, very interesting and I think my grandson learned a couple of things too.
