Now an ebook, 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."

An interesting behind-the-scenes look at Air Force One, as well as some little-known (at least to me) tidbits about the presidents themselves. Good for any history buff who isn’t above a little bit of gossip.
