First Air Force One Now Sits Abandoned

The first plane to be designated as Air Force One -- first used by President Dwight D. Eisenhower on cross-country voyages -- "now sits in a southern Arizona field decaying under the relentless glare of the sun," the AP reports.

Said airport manager Steve Miller: "I think it's one of these big secrets that, really, few people know that it's out there. It's sad that it's just sitting out there, considering its history over the past 70 years."
