Photo Comment

This is the S-3 that flew then President Bush aboard the Lincoln and became NAVY 1, the only such time a Naval aircraft was designated as such. The S-3's final paint scheme differs somewhat as when it flew Bush on board in May 2003. The aircraft was retired July of that year to the Naval Museum at Pensacola.
