Listen to Air Force One on the day JFK died

Here is the declassified audio transmission from Air Force One in the panicky hours after the assassination of JFK on November 22, 1963.

According to the National Archives:

The recording includes references to new code names and incidents. Among them are a private conversation by head of the Secret Service Jerry Behn about the disposition of the President’s body; an expanded conversation about how to remove the body from the plane and where to take it; an urgent effort by an aide to Air Force Chief of Staff Curtis LeMay to reach General Clifton; and attempts to locate various Congressmen from Texas.
