DAYTON, OHIO – Restoration crews at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force have moved VC-137C Air Force One (SAM 26000), which was used by eight presidents – Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, George H.W. Bush and Clinton, to the museum’s new fourth building on April 9. The VC-54C Sacred Cow, which was first used by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, was also moved into the fourth building.
The new $40.8 million fourth building was privately financed by the Air Force Museum Foundation, and is scheduled to open to the public on June 8, 2016. Special weekend activities and demonstrations are being planned to continue celebrating the building’s opening, June 11-12.
The 224,000 square foot building will house four galleries – Presidential, Research & Development, Space and Global Reach, along with three science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning nodes. For more information, visit www.nationalmuseum.af.mil.
