The president will arrive on a 757, that still has the look of the larger Boeing 747.

It’s not uncommon for presidents to use the smaller plane when flying in to smaller municipal airports.

President Barack Obama used the smaller version in 2012 when he was campaigning and had events around the country.

President George W. Bush flew in to Lunken on a smaller 757 during a visit in 2007. Bush was in Cincinnati for an event with Congressman Steve Chabot.

For a closer look at Air Force One planes, the National Museum of the Air Force at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base has a collection of planes used from the Roosevelt-Clinton years.
