Dublin Detailer Selected for Air Force One Detailing Team

 

Perry Barentine of Leprechaun Carwash joins a handpicked team of thirty detailers who will travel to Seattle to restore two historic paragons in U.S. aviation history. The first presidential jet plane (Air Force One) known as SAM (Special Air Missions) 970 was a flying Oval Office for four U.S. Presidents including Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon. The Boeing 707-120 also entertained many international VIPs such as Nikita Khrushchev and Henry Kissinger.

The team will also refurbish a rare WWII B29 Bomber known as T-Square 54, both of which are on exhibit in Seattle’s Museum of Flight.
