Presidential Archive Movement

Presidential materials are loaded onto a C-5 Galaxy cargo aircraft at Joint Base Andrews, Md., Feb. 15, 2017. The Joint Records Team (JRT) made up of Airmen assigned to the Air Force District of Washington (AFDW) and Soldiers from the U.S. Army's 3rd Infantry Division "The Old Guard" worked in concert with Presidential Material Handlers from the National Archives and Records Management (NARA) over several months to ensure the safe movement of the records and artifacts gathered during the eight years of President Obama's administration. The JRT was tasked with helping to inventory, prepare for shipping, palletize and load several tons of paper records, terabytes of electronic records, and thousands of artifacts. Along with several truck shipments the bulk of the materials were loaded onto and Air Force C-5 Galaxy cargo aircraft brought in from Dover Air Force Base, Del., and were then flown to Chicago, Ill., where they were placed in secure storage until completion of Obama's Presidential Library. The library is part of the presidential library system, which is administered by the National Archives and Records Administration. (U.S. Air Force photo/Jim Varhegyi) (released)
