The main difference between the military C-118 and commercial DC-6 airliner is the installation of a large cargo door on the left side.This aircraft served as the official Air Force One for Presidents Kennedy and Johnson.The VC-118A was soon overshadowed by the introduction of the first Boeing VC-137s.Both Presidents preferred to travel in the larger, faster jet and the VC-118 was used primarily for short trips to airports that were too small for the larger Boeings.This aircraft is on display at the Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson, Arizona.
