Dinner under Air Force One
 
Last night I went to the Reagan Library for a book signing, lecture, and dinner.

I live fairly close to the library so I get over there quite a bit, but this is the first time I've been there for a private affair and had dinner in the Air Force One Pavilion:

Interesting! The daughter of a couple we've known for years caters for Nancy. Hope the food was good.

Mike, the food was great! And considering the size of the crowd the service was also surprisingly good. They fussed over all the guests throughout the evening.

In the shadow of history... SAM27000 was the plane that carried Nixon to CA after his resignation in 1973. It also served all his successors until its last mission as AF1 in 2001, flying "W" from San Antonio to Waco, TX. :scool:

What a cool display - having AF1 in the library! I think I would have felt a bit like Damocles with that hanging over my head during dinner...:eek:

Even though it's hanging by much more than a hair, the thought of an earthquake did cross my mind. :)

I found this video of SAM27000 at Rochester, NY, an airport I landed at several times, albeit in a Piper Cherokee.
