      SAM 26000 is a Boeing VC-137C United States Air Force aircraft specifically configured and maintained for use by the President of the United States. It used the call sign Air Force One when the President was on board, SAM 26000 otherwise.

      A VC-137C with Air Force serial number 62-6000, SAM 26000 was a customized Boeing 707. It entered service in 1962 during the administration of John F. Kennedy and was replaced in Presidential service in 1972, but kept as a backup. The aircraft was finally retired in 1998 and is now on display at the National Museum of the United States Air Force. The aircraft was built at Boeing's Renton plant at a cost of $8 million. Raymond Loewy, working with First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, designed the blue and white color scheme featuring the presidential seal that is still used today. The plane served as the primary means of transportation for three presidents: Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, and Richard Nixon during his first term.


      The Boeing 707 was the first successful commercial jetliner, produced by the Boeing Company in the 1950s. It was introduced into service in 1958 and quickly became popular with airlines due to its speed and range capabilities. The 707 had a sleek and aerodynamic design with four high-bypass turbofan engines, a spacious cabin, and a range of around 4,000 nautical miles. It revolutionized air travel and opened up new possibilities for global commerce and communication. The 707 was widely used by both military and civilian organizations and was eventually replaced by newer, more efficient airliners such as the Boeing 747 and the 727. Despite its age, the 707 remains an important part of aviation history and is remembered for its role in the development of modern air transportation
