Q2 Rewind: John F. Kennedy lands in Billings

Posted: Updated:

Just two months before President John F. Kennedy was shot, he stopped in Billings during a whirlwind tour to 11 western states.

The local electorate voted for his Republican opponent Richard Nixon during the 1960 election, but images from Kennedy's welcoming party at Billings Logan Field show a crowd excited to meet the president.

Kennedy's brief stop in Billings included a quick trip to the fairgrounds where he addressed an overflowing crowd before returning to Air Force One.
