    FILE - In this May 20, 1998 file photo, Air Force officials and reporters line up to tour Special Air Mission 26000, known as Air Force One when the President is aboard, after the historic plane made its final landing at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. The Boeing jetliner on which Lyndon B. Johnson took the oath of office is in a hangar away from the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force near Dayton, Ohio. Federal budget cuts had halted shuttle buses to the hangar. But with the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's assassination approaching, museum officials decided they had enough resources to resume the tours on a trimmed-down schedule.

From the eternal flame at his gravesite to the historic Air Force One plane, many key items that make up the searing images from the assassination of President John F. Kennedy are available for public viewing 50 years later.

In some cases, officials had to scramble to make that happen.

The Boeing jetliner on which Lyndon B. Johnson took the oath of office is in a hangar near the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force near Dayton, Ohio. Federal budget cuts had halted shuttle buses to the hangar. But with the anniversary approaching, museum officials decided they had enough resources to resume tours on a trimmed schedule.

The eternal flame at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia was restored recently. And the presidential library in Boston is preparing a special display.
