LBJ Foundation, US vie for historic Boeing 707
Austin — The Houston Chronicle is reporting; a battle is brewing over who gets to display the Air Force One jet aboard which President Lyndon B. Johnson took the oath of office.
The Austin American-Statesman reports the LBJ Foundation raised millions of dollars and planned to build a pavilion by the LBJ Presidential Library to house the VC-137C, a modified Boeing 707 the U.S. Air Force flew to transport U.S. presidents from 1962 until a Boeing 747 variant replaced it in 1990.
