Air Force One | Episode #129 | Election College: United States Presidential Election History

One of the biggest perks about winning a Presidential election is that you don't have to sit next to that guy who takes his shoes off on the plane anymore. In this episode we talk about . . . *The history of the aircraft US Presidents fly in. *If your name is "Roosevelt" and you're the President, you're going to fly! *How they came up with the name "Air Force One." *Where can you go aboard an Air Force One today. *How much does it cost to operate the Chief Executive's airplane?  *Who gets to fly on Air Force One (and what happens if they put you in the back). *Do Presidents ever still fly commercial aircraft? *Why you don't want to mess around with this plane.   _______________ We recorded an audiobook!
