AIR FORCE ONE

The Homeward Bound team contracted with Coast Machinery Movers to move the aircraft from San Bernardino to the Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California via heavy transport truck. The six hour, 100 mile journey began at 11 p.m. June 20, 2003, and the airplane arrived at the Reagan Library at 5 a.m., the next morning.

The fuselage weighed about 60,000 pounds and was fitted with special dollies at the nose and main landing gear locations that could be rotated 90 degrees in either direction even with weights up to 300,000 lbs. The dollies also had built-in hydraulics so the fuselage could be lowered to within inches of the ground to go under overpasses and then be raised back up for up to 30 mph traveling speeds. The fuselage was moved intact with a total length of approximately 150 feet and was set up to accommodate a maximum height restriction of 15′ 8″. All equipment that was used was certified by the California Highway Patrol. Coast Machinery Movers assisted in the moving and reassembly of Air force One upon arrival.
