The Columbine II, a Lockheed Constellation, was the first aircraft to bear the call sign "Air Force One" and flew the 34th president, President Dwight D. Eisenhower, from 1953 to 1954. The aircraft, officially retired in 1968, was named by First Lady Mamie Eisenhower after the state flower of Colorado, which is painted on the nose of the aircraft. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt.
