JetStar Lyndon Johnson called this four-engine, 13-passenger Lockheed C-140 JetStar “Airforce One-Half” while using it during the years he was vice-president. It was rescued from the scrap pile and restored in 2010, thanks to the efforts of Johnson’s pilot, James U. Cross, who later flew Air Force One after LBJ became president in November 1963. Cross compared operating Air Force One and the JetStar to driving an 18-wheeler versus a sports car respectively. Photo by Jerry Ondash
