Johnson was a mega POS. Conservative Texas still has the same crappy RINO scum/Democrat Lite politicians.
Johnson’s Plane!!! make a public urinal out of it.
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.
Say what you will about LBJ, the man knew EXACTLY what he wanted when it came to PANTS:
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.
The C-140 is a military version of the Lockheed Model 1329 light jet transport. The prototype Jet Star was first flown on Sept. 4, 1957, only 241 days after design completion. Production began in 1960.
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.
