On March 14th, 1976 Air Force One landed at Munich Riem Airport.
But only half ...
Because the Boeing 707-430 was not the original Air Force One, but the 16-year-old "Frankfurt" (D-ABOD / 17720), which was decommissioned by Lufthansa on November 30, 1975.
In March, D-ABOD started with the approval of the White House in Washington with special paintwork and the registration TC-AHG in Hamburg and landed on March 14, 1976 in Munich Riem - for the film "Das Ultimatum" (original title: Twilight's Last Gleaming) by Robert Aldrich in cooperation with Bavaria Film.
The left side of the aircraft on the Boeing 707-430 was in the original Lufthansa livery, while the right side was in the Air Force One - SAM livery.
At the end of the shooting, the D-ABOD flew back to Hamburg. On March 19, 1976, the former Lufthansa "Frankfurt" ended its flying career with 59,024 flight hours.
The machine has been at Hamburg Airport since then, was there for a long time as a D-AHFG and was sold to Hamburg Airport in 1999 for a mandatory mark. In 2006 the 707 was restored by the Hamburg Airport Friends and since 2010 it has been parked in its original paintwork and partially renovated as "Airport One" on the edge of the airfield, where it last acted as gate guard.
Allegedly, the Airport One built in 1960 was still airworthy at the time and the 707-430 was to become an integral part of Hamburg Airport.
In 2021, however, the “Oscar Delta” 707-430 was somewhat surprisingly scrapped
The individual parts of the D-ABOD were auctioned off fairly quickly via the online auction in September 2021 - in November ALL parts of the 707-430 were sold via the online auction.
