This is the last flight for this former Air Force One aircraft. Shown here being delivered to San Bernardino Int'l airport for preparation to be delivered to the Reagan Library in Simi Valley. Nancy Reagan was onboard and spoke to crowd after landing at SBD.
Originally N7585A with American Airlines and N703PC Ports of Call. Like most 707s it had quite a varied life operating with quite a number of airlines. It eventually wound up with New Gomair in 2002 as 9XR-IS and was w/o on approach to Bangui, Central African Republic, 4 Jul 2002. The aircraft had developed a technical problem and the crew elected to divert to Bangui. Apparently there may have been a miscalculation with the amount of fuel dumped and it ran out of fuel on final.
This 1959 build 707 was seen in Heathrow's Cargo Area in 1973. It crashed as N730JP in 1976 whilst operating for Lloyd Aéreo Boliviano when it failed to get airborne from Santa Cruz with the loss of all 3 crew and 88 on the ground.
