It’s good to be back from my summer holidays and thanks for continuing to listen.
This week’s episode covers a history of Air Force One and Presidential aviation more generally.
It’s a fascinating history, although I would say that wouldn’t I?
The planes form part of a tale covering assassinations, resignations, legislation, and terror attacks.
