The Boeing C-137 is a military version of the Boeing 707 which was used by the USAF. Air Force One is the air traffic control call sign of any U.S. Air Force aircraft carrying the President of the United States. In 1959, the time when the Boeing 707 was very limited, it incorporated four 6123-kg (13,500 lb.) dry thrust Pratt & Whitney JT3C6 turbojets but only one variant had served with the USAF, the VC-137C Air Force One Presidential transport. To supplement the VC-137s, C-135 airframes were converted by the USAF to VC-135 VIP standard. The primary users of these were the United States, wherein they used it for staff transport.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
