Earlier this month an auto detailer from Ephrata joined a team of 35 hand picked detailers to take on the project of a lifetime. The nation's top detailers came together to bring back the shine on the original Air Force One at the Seattle Museum of Flight.
“This is a special opportunity that has arisen at an important point in my career,” said Bill 'The Buff Man' Quinn. “I am honored and excited to be a member of such and exclusive team and to get the chance to use my skills for such an esteemed job—preserving an important piece of U.S. aviation history.”
The Air Force One Special Air Missions 970 flew Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon. The plane is now sits on the tarmac at the Seattle Museum of Flight and had not been cleaned in over two years.
The team of 35 worked for five days cleaning the oxidized metals on the plane in sections.
