Federal officials at the General Services Administration are set to sell a plane that once served as Air Force One, this week.

A GSA official stated on the department's Facebook page that the plane flew Presidents Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton and Bush; as well as the Vice-President, First Lady, Cabinet secretaries, 4-star generals, admirals, foreign dignitaries and more, reports Fox News.

The auction - which includes the vessels, vehicles, space-shuttle parts, real estate, heavy machinery and scientific items now considered surplus, or excess, federal equipment - is set to begin Wednesday at 11 a.m., with the minimum, or starting bid, pegged at 50,000 dollars, according to the GSA's site.

The DC9-32, with tail number N681AL, is currently stowed at Phoenix/Mesa Gateway Airport in Mesa, Ariz., although GSA officials caution that inspections of the property are "by appointment only". (ANI)
