Air Force One / Freedom One Project
Air Force One / Freedom One

Pima Air Museum, Tucson, Arizona 2018

I had the honour of joining an amazing team of professional detailer's from around the world to polish a very special aircraft and help to preserve a piece of American history. Formerly part of the American Presidential fleet, this Boeing VC-137B, Special Air Mission 971 (SAM971), was an integral part of some historical events. On some occasions during the late 1950's and early 1960's, it was used as Air Force One to transport President Eisenhower and President Kennedy. It also carried government officials and dignitaries from around the world as Air Force Two. Most notably, this aircraft was used as Freedom One on two important occasions. In the late 1970's, it brought American hostages home from Iran. It was also responsible for bringing home American POWs from Operation Desert Storm.

This was the highlight of my career as a professional detailer. Thank you Joe Fernandez of Superior Shine Auto Detailing for inviting Piskey's to be part of your detail team for this special project!
