Preserved inside the Hill AFB Museum is C-140B 62-4201 which was once used to fly around President Lyndon B Johnson and his wife. (Detailed info on this bird can be found when clicking the serial in the previous sentence)

On a separate note, undoubtedly the coolest bizjet ever: the Jetstar.

The Jetstar was always a bit rare, wasn't it?

This one is landing at Manchester, NH (KMHT) rwy #17 on 15 April 2000
Image


And this one is landing on rwy #01 at Rutland, VT (KRUT) on 4 October 1998

Terrible light on this one, but what can you do? (Waiting for the crowd to arrive will only create more problems!)

AMEN! Enough seen, but unfortunately no pictures of my own, so I will have to stay on the sideline watching....

Only 200 or so were built, so never big enough numbers to become mainstream. Which indeed is a pity.

Tom, great to see them flying.
EC, the Tatarstan is a hammer.

Here is a mil trio. The two VC-140s were stationed at Ramstein with 58 MAS.

I remember seeing my first "live" one at the airshowin Ramstein in 1986, and for sure the shiny bare metal impressed me!
