Air Force One Mr. Walsh talked about his book Air Force One: A History of the Presidents and Their Planes, published by Hyperion. The book examines how each president treated his time aboard Air Force One from the first propeller-driven Pan Am plane of Franklin Delano Roosevelt to the jumbo 747 used by the current president. The author interviewed Presidents Ford, Carter, Clinton, and George H.W. Bush in order to gain insight into the atmosphere on the plane during their respective terms. Mr. Walsh, who as senior White House correspondent for U.S. News and World Report made hundreds of trips on the plane himself, also interviewed other travelers and crew members. During his presentation he showed slides. Mr. Albertazzie then recounted some of his experiences as a pilot. After their presentations Mr. Walsh and Mr. Albertazzie answered questions from members of the audience. close
