Portman, Turner Working to Keep LBJ’s Air Force One in Dayton
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Congressman Mike Turner and Sen. Rob Portman today sent a letter to Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James expressing serious concerns over reports that the Lyndon Johnson Presidential Library has requested to incorporate the Air Force One plane used by Johnson during his presidency into their collection.
The plane is currently housed at the National Museum of the United State Air Force (NMUSAF) in Dayton.
Occupying merely 14 acres, the LBJ Library lacks the necessary facilities to house an aircraft the size of Air Force One. Additionally, significantly fewer visitors would be exposed to the aircraft if it were removed from the NMUSAF and relocated to the LBJ Presidential Library, the letter states.
The letter says the LBJ library receives about 125,000 visitors a year, compared to the Air Force museum's 1.3 million.
"Moving this aircraft from the NMUSAF is a mistake that would deprive the public of access to such an import piece of American history, the letter states.
The NMUSAF is the oldest and largest military aviation museum in the world and is well deserving of such an iconic piece of aviation history. Dayton is the birthplace of the Wright Brothers and has a long history of supporting the Air Force. Located within one days drive of 60 percent of the United States, the museum draws millions of visitors annually and provides important educational opportunities for all who visit, the letter states.
Turner is chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces.
