Eisenhower Prepares to Board Helicopter

This black and white photograph is of President Dwight D. Eisenhower posing next to the first presidential helicopter, a Bell UH-13J Sioux, on the South Lawn of the White House Grounds. Although presidents had used airplanes to travel for some time, helicopters were not adopted for use as presidential conveyance until Eisenhower's administration.
