Ike's Bird- The First authentic Air Force One -Webinar
Time and Date: August 12at 3:00 p.m.-The factory drawing for Aero Commander serial number 55-4638 is titled “Ike’s Bird”. Built in 1955, the plane and several others were ordered by the government for a special purpose… to carry the President, Vice President and other government officials on short trips. The plane has the distinction of being the smallest aircraft ever to carry the “Air Force One” call sign. Victory Flights are done to honor the veterans service to the nation and our freedoms. A unique feature of “Ike’s Bird” is its low entry door. Only one foot off the ground, the Commander can easily accommodate wounded and disabled veterans… men and women who otherwise have great difficulty in climbing into some of the CAF’s World War II aircraft.
