Air Force One: The Planes and the Presidents
release year: 2001
viewing setting: home DVD, 10/21/12 and 7/25/05
synopsis: This documentary covers the history of the U.S. Presidential plane and the leaders who have used it, from the 1930s to the 1990s.
impressions: Good stuff. I like planes, and I like history; this is filled with all kinds of little facts and interview clips. I found it to be not only rich but also complete.
something this movie has that no other movie has: Actually...it contains live footage of John F. Kennedy's assassination. I've never seen that before, anywhere.
acting: n/a, but the interviews are well-done and the interviewees professional. Charlton Heston does a fine job narrating the overall work.
final word: Worth seeing if you like planes, presidents, or both.
