Presidential VC-9C jet plane to be on display in Atwater
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- You will soon be able to see a piece of presidential history in the North Valley. A jet plane that carried U.S. presidents will go on display Friday in Atwater.
TheVC-9C made its last flight from Arizona to the Valley in October. It is now ready to go on permanent display at the Castle Air Museum.
The nearly 40-year-old jetliner served presidents, vice presidents and every first lady from 1975 to 2005. The plane was usually designated Air Force Two but when presidents flew, it became Air Force One.
Presidents used it when they needed to visit smaller airports. Bill Clinton officially used the plane in 1999, and it's been reported that president bush used it for a secret flight to Baghdad in 2006.
