Planes of the Presidents
In 1943, President Franklin D. Roosevelt flew to Casablanca aboard a Boeing model 314 Clipper. A special VC-54C, nicknamed the "Sacred Cow" by the White House press corps, became the first presidential aircraft. The 29th DC-6 was ordered by the Air Force, adapted as the presidential aircraft and designated the VC-118. In 1962, Boeing introduced U.S. presidents to modern jet transportation with the introduction of the Boeing model 707-320B. In all, seven presidents were served by the 707-320B. Today, the chief executive flies aboard a specially configured 747-200B, the newest and largest presidential airplane. Use the Advanced Search tool to find additional imagery.
