BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. — Master detailer and trainer Renny Doyle of Attention to Details Ltd. and Detailing Success located in Big Bear Lake, California, is leading the largest Detailers of Air Force One team to date in a two-weeklong, mega-detailing event at Seattle’s Museum of Flight, according to a press release.
The detailing event, taking place Monday, April 11, through Saturday, April 23, is in celebration of Boeing’s 100th anniversary and the opening of the Museum of Flight’s new Airpark Pavilion, which now houses more than 15 historic icons of American aviation, stated the release.
From across the country, reported the release, 60 handpicked detailers will continue their “decade-long preservation of the original Air Force One presidential jet, polish the all-aluminum fuselage of a legendary WWII Boeing B-29 Superfortress bomber, and clean and preserve the paint and bright work on 14 additional priceless aircraft, which are now displayed in the new Airpark Pavilion.”
According to the release, the Detailers of Air Force One team members are no strangers to cleaning, restoring and protecting multimillion-dollar museum artifacts and rare, exotic and classic vehicles of all kinds, including: vintage firetrucks; Frank Sinatra’s 1976 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow; Reggie Jackson’s 1963 427 Shelby Cobra; Gordon McCall’s 1937 Fiat 500; and a fleet of Maseratis, Porsches and Ferraris during Monterey Car Week.
However, reported the release, Boeing’s centennial celebration will be Doyle’s “most demanding detailing project yet.”
“Boeing wants all their aircraft in mint condition for the centennial [celebration] so we will be coordinating twice the number of team members (60) as ever before, and working on about 15 multimillion-dollar aircraft simultaneously,” said Doyle in the article. “They will come in two, weeklong shifts — Team Alpha and Team Bravo — with Team Centennial consisting of team leaders, supervisors and veterans of the project who will be on-site for the full run.”
He continued in the article, “This is by far the most exciting and yet the most challenging project the Museum of Flight has offered us, and we are all honored to be tasked with such a prestigious and unprecedented opportunity.”
All members of the Detailers of Air Force One team own successful detailing businesses, noted the release, and each pays his or her personal expenses and donates his or her time and skill to the project.
