This Air Force One Book contains stunning photography, personal insight and commentary
from former presidents and former First Lady Nancy Reagan. Joel and Michael Cohen
tell the story of a triumph of engineering carried out through the sheer determination
and patriotism of hundreds of men and women committed to preserving history.
On September 8, 2001, the Air Force decommissioned SAM 27000 and gave it on permanent
loan to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, CA. Documentary filmmakers
Joel Haskell Cohen and Michael Cohen have chronicled the historic final days of the
most famous aircraft in the world in this Air Force One Book.
The Cohen’s cameras were rolling as SAM 27000 touched down for the final time at
San Bernardino International Airport in California where it was disassembled and
reassembled piece by piece, in one of the more complex engineering projects in the
history of modern aviation. This Air Force One Book followed its perilous 102 mile
midnight journey by truck to the Reagan Presidential Library where it was completely
reconstructed in a massive new indoor pavilion. On October 21, 2005 they captured
its rededication as a national historic treasure by President and Mrs. Bush and by
Former First Lady Nancy Reagan.
