Johnson was a mega POS. Conservative Texas still has the same crappy RINO scum/Democrat Lite politicians.

This is the C-140. AF also used them for years as flight check aircraft, airborne platform used to check and calibrate navagational aids and air traffic radar.

The classic LBJ joke:

-------

President Johnson gave a speech and was heading back to the plane.

But it wasn't the right plane.

A soldier on duty told him, "Mr. President, this isn't your plane."

And LBJ responded, "They're all my planes, son."

-------

But was it just a joke?

Johnson was the first President I really remember as a child.... I always felt bad for him...he always looked sad or constipated.

Although the majority of those produced were built for the civilian market, the USAF bought 16 Jet Stars as C-140As and Bs, the first of which was delivered in late 1961. Five C-140As were assigned to the Air Force Communications Command for use in evaluating military navigation aids and operations. Eleven C-140Bs were assigned to the Military Airlift Command for operational support airlift. Six of them were flown as VC-140Bs on special government and White House airlift missions by the 89th Military Airlift Wing at Andrews Air Force Base, Md.
