Here are a few shots of one of the coolest projects I have ever been apart of! This year I was hand selected out of thousands of detailers nationwide to be on the coveted Air Force One Detail Team. This was the very first jet engine Air Force One that President Eisenhower took delivery of in 1959. President Kennedy flew down to Texas before he was assassinated and President Johnson was also sworn in as the next US President on this very plane that we polished! These two presidents were among many heads of state and other VIP's to ride on this piece of history.
Along with polishing the fuselage, wings, crown and engines of Air Force One we also had the opportunity to polish out the Concorde Alpha Golf. The Concorde currently holds the world speed record for flying from New York to its current home at the Museum of Flight in Seattle, WA. The paint on the Concorde was heavily oxidized and dull. Air Force One was in better shape thanks to the team that detailed it last year and gave it a nice layer of protection. Armed with Flex polishers and Sonax polishes me and 34 other seasoned detailers had no problem at all bringing back the original shine and luster to both of these historic planes!
