This week, Mark Aguirre of Epic Auto Detailing in Long Beach is at Seattle’s Museum of Flight, where he has been selected from hundreds of detailers nationwide to the elite 30-man Air Force One Detailing Team restoring and preserving the original presidential jet that served as a flying Oval Office for Eisenhower,Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon.

“I have carefully selected my team because there is no room for mistakes in detailing this multi-million-dollar airplane, and Mark has shown he will accept nothing short of perfection in his work,” said Air Force One detailer Renny Doyle of Detailing Success, who has been restoring the plane over the last decade.

The presidential jet, and the 787 Dreamliner, which the team will also detail, currently reside on the tarmac at Seattle’s Museum and suffer from the city’s torrential weather. The museum is building a covered hangar this year as the team moves from a restoration to preservation stage.
