Image of Air Force One and Air Force Two at Love Field

Noel V. Cook
Original 35mm color slide showing Air Force One at Love Field, shortly after the arrival of President John F. Kennedy. The image was taken by Federal Aviation Administration employee Noel V. Cook from a roof top outside his office as the Kennedys, hidden from view, greeted the crowd. Air Force One is the plane on the right and it carried Kennedy; Lyndon Johnson’s plane, Air Force Two with the red nose and tail, is in the middle, and a commercial Pan American jet for members of the press is at left. The unidentified man at right is presumably a Love Field or FAA employee. Dallas Police provided security at the airport that day and some were stationed on rooftops, but they were dressed in standard police uniforms.
