Karl D. Stoltzfus Sr., founder of Dynamic Aviation, purchased the Columbine II in 2015. The Columbine II, a Lockheed Constellation, was the first aircraft with the callsign "Air Force One" and flew President Dwight D. Eisenhower from 1953 to 1954. The call sign was adopted after a near mid-air collision with an Eastern Airlines flight, which had the same call numbers, in the skies over New York in 1954. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt.
