An auction for an airplane that was once part of the presidential fleet is underway. The U.S. General Services Administration says the blue-and-white DC-9 was part of the Air Force Two fleet and at one point may have served as Air Force One, a plane used by the president. The plane is being stored at the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.

The starting bid in the auction that finishes May 30 was $50,000.
