President's Seats A & B

 

This is where Ike sat when he rode on the L-26. There is ample leg room and a commanding view of the cabin and ground.  When the President was not on board, this became the DVC... the Distinguished Visitor's Chair. The highest ranking person on board sat here.  Often it was Vice President Nixon, Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, or another ranking Cabinet officer.

The President's Seat is a large and comfortable bench seat across the back of the plane.  After all, he is the President. The seat holds two people.  We call them seats A & B. The President often sat with other officials or family members on this seat when he flew.   

President's Seat A on the left, and Seat B on the right.

Co-Pilot's Seat 

 

This is the seat next to the pilot in the cockpit.   Col. William Draper was Ike's pilot of Air Force One.  Draper had been on Ike's Army staff and followed him to the White House.   He and his staff flew this plane many hours in support of Ike, his family and government.  This rider will enjoy fabulous views of the ground, sky and instruments.   There is a weigh restriction on this seat of 250 pounds.
