Air Force One

The Reagan Library has Air Force One on display so you can tour it (the one retired in 1998, not the current one), because, "Upon leaving office, President Reagan stated that one day he hoped he would be able to share Air Force One with the American people by placing it at his Presidential Library."

The site gives some facts on the plane, like usage stats for each president who used it:
Nixon: 30 missions, 104,925 miles, 213 hours, 140 sorties
Ford: 55 missions, 177,452 miles, 372 hours, 205 sorties
Carter: 86 missions, 284,009 miles, 545 hours, 312 sorties
Reagan: 211 missions, 631,640 miles, 1288 hours, 580 sorties
H.W. Bush: 57 missions, 110,823 miles, 362 hours, 190 sorties
Clinton: 5 missions, 5,247 miles, 11 hours, 11 sorties
W. Bush: 1 mission, 334 miles, 1.9 hours, 2 sorties
