Besides Disneyland

A slice of aeronautics history recently landed at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda, California - the recently restored six ton Sikorsky helicopter used by presidents Johnson, Kennedy, Nixon and Ford.

A fact sheet about the helicopter is linked here.

An interesting site dedicated to Igor I. Sikorsky linked here.

A letter from then serving President Richard Nixon to Igor's widow linked here.

A site dedicated to "Marine One" linked here.
