Now in paperback, this definitive history of Air Force One
by the award-winning chief White House correspondent for
U.S. News & World Report is a "marvelous book brimming with
unforgettable anecdotes" (David Brinkley).
From FDR's prop-driven Pan Am to the glimmering
blue-and-white jumbo 747 on which George W. Bush travels,
the president's plane has captured the public's awe and
imagination and is recognized around the world as a symbol
of American power. In this unique book, Air Force One is
revealed as a very special habitat that functions as an
invaluable window on each of the presidents who occupy it.
Based on interviews with five living presidents, scores of
past and present government officials, and staff and crew
members of Air Force One, Walsh's book features countless
fascinating and often outrageous stories of life aboard the
"flying White House."
