An Air Force One plane landed in the Hudson Valley and will remain in the area.

On Wednesday, a former Air Force One plane landed at the Hudson Valley Regional Airport. The Air Force One Gulfstream G3 was used by President George H.W. Bush and it will stay in the Hudson Valley so students attending Dutchess Community College can train with the plane, which should lead to higher-paying jobs, officials say.

"Earlier today, we welcomed a former Air Force One Gulfstream G3 used by President George H.W. Bush jet to Hudson Valley Regional Airport, where it will remain and become part of Dutchess Community College's aviation maintenance technician program - training local students for high-paying jobs in the aviation industry," Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro said.

The plane was part of the presidential fleet in the 1980s and was acquired by the college through the government surplus program, college officials say.

"DCC is getting another step closer to launching its Airframe and Powerplant Maintenance Program at Hudson Valley Regional Airport! This Air Force One Gulfstream 3 flew in this morning; it was used in the presidential fleet in the 1980s. DCC acquired it through the government surplus program. Starting in 2020, students will be able to enter an FAA-certified airplane mechanic program," Dutchess County Community College wrote on Facebook.
