Recently at the Reagan Presidential Library and Museum, I toured Air Force One Tail No. 27000, which is a Boeing 707 that was in service during Reagan’s presidency. It was a fascinating tour in that it was a humble jet with four seats across separated by an aisle.
The media seating area was the last part of the jet in the very back. I was reminded of Reagan’s policy to make the media pay “full fare plus one dollar” for every seat.
