@spacemacspiff Really dig the blade tips.

@boneyardsafari @spacemacspiff thanks.

Throwback Thursday! The first Air Force One which flew Dwight D. Eisenhower, returned to flight on March 19, 2016, taking off from Marana airport in Marana, Arizona. On March 22nd, Columbine II began the cross-country journey to Bridgewater, Virginia to undergo a complete restoration. This aircraft spurred the callsign Air Force One after a near collision occurred while landing at LAX with Eisenhower onboard. The other aircraft, a civilian airline with the registration number 8610 was cleared in to land along with Columbine II which had a military registration of the same number. Thinking they were the same aircraft, air traffic control cleared both to land. Officials vowed to never let that happen again, thus the AF1 designation. #TVRtakeover #AF1 #ColumbineII #Constellation #VC121 #AvGeek #Vintage #Air2Air #Aviation www.tvrphotography.com

@audi_3_tdi That project turned out fantastic! Thank you for the hard work to fly her again. As a citizen I appreciate this part of US history and your efforts to preserve it. Hats off to you and your team!

Shot south of Phoenix at a private airfield. Columbine II is a Lockheed VC-121A-LO Constellation (military serial number 48-0610, Lockheed Model 749-79-36); the aircraft that was to become the first plane to use the Air Force One callsign and the only Presidential aircraft ever sold to a private party. The aircraft has been ferried from long term storage in the Sonoran Desert at Marana Regional Airport, Arizona, to the east coast for restoration in March 2016.#columbine2 #columbineii #lockheedmartin #jwharper#phoenix #photoshop #photography #beon12

@boneyardsafari @clear_prop no she was at AMARG and then was bought privately. Now she is on a ferry flight and being restored to how she was configured when she served Pres. Eisenhower.
